The carillon, pp. 37 ff.
THE CARILLON The Electronic Schulmerich chimes were installed in 1967 by the family of Thomas George Hoeft son of Hubert and Edna Hoeft. Tommy was born Nov. 25, 1955, was accidentally dround(drowned) June 25, 1967. Three tapes came with the original purchase. Others were added later as memorials to Gordon Rilling, Arthur and Emma Steinke, Asabel Wrightman, and John Ream. The bells are rung daily at noon and 6p.m. and on Sunday before Sunday school and worship hours. Tommie's mother said, "we chose the bells because Tommie loved beautiful things, especially music." His favorite hymn was the carol that began "there's a song in the air, there's a star in the sky…" ____________________ The Bells are the voice of the church. They have tones that touch and search the hearts of young and old. Longfellow. ____________________ Music, oh sweet and healing balm of troubles. Horace.
