The 43rd annual bell ringing celebration at the Weaverville Bandstand took place Thursday, July 4.

Scott Morris officiated, Shawn Williamson brought the old Weaverville Grammar School bell. The bell ringing started with a salute to the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and a thank-you to the nation’s armed forces with the color guard, followed shortly after by the singing of the national anthem and the bell ringing.
