This year’s concert is dedicated to the memory of Ann Gartner, former director of the First United Methodist choir and an avid organizer and promoter of “Chimes and Chocolates.” She directed last year’s concert and will be greatly missed at this year’s event.
Beeville’s four church handbell choirs from First Baptist, First Presbyterian, First United Methodist and St. Philip’s Episcopal Churches will again present an evening of bell music. Each choir will ring two selections, and the four groups will ring the opening and closing hymns and two special arrangements en masse.
The women and handbell choir members of the four churches and Vineyard Board members will provide chocolate desserts following the concert for all attending. The reception will be held in the FBC Christian Activities Center.
A goodwill offering will be collected to benefit the Vineyard, which is in need of additional funds to help those in need in this community.
