Bells around the county are going to ring to commemorate the end of the first world war.

All over the country, and more locally in Haliburton County, the legion will be getting involved in the Bells for Peace initiative. Bells for Peace was created by the Royal Canadian Legion, it is used to celebrate the end of the first world war.

On November 11th, bells in church towers and fire halls will ring 100 times, once for each year since the war ended. The legion says that Bells for Peace is also to celebrate the 650,000 people that served during the war, as well as the 66,000 that lost their lives in the Great War.

Branch 636 in Minden will be part of the celebrations.
