Happy New Year everyone! Hope you had a wonderful Advent/Christmas ringing season and that 2016 is off to a great start for you and your ringers.
The Central Alabama Handbell Festival 2016 is March 4 – 5 at Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church in McCalla, Alabama. The registration form can be downloaded from the registration page here on the website. Please get those forms sent in to me as soon as possible.
The CAHF Planning Team is made up of all handbell directors and ringers who are interested in the Central Alabama Handbell Festival. Our next CAHF Planning Team meeting is scheduled for January 26 at 7:00 p.m. at Vestavia Hills Baptist Church to review and finalize plans for CAHF 2016. We will also look forward to CAHF 2017. Please bring at least two (2) selections for consideration for the music list for 2017. You are invited to attend.
Please help get the word out about the Festival to Handbell Choirs in your area. We would love to have the biggest turnout yet this year. Remember, the Handbell Festival is open to all handbell choirs, regardless of experience level or number of ringers. It is a wonderful opportunity to explore new music and ringing techniques, make new friends and benefit from performing in a large group setting. I look forward to seeing everyone again and hopefully meeting new friends.
