Some of our members have shared a favorite bell or two. We would enjoy sharing one that you have. 

Send a picture (or two) and a short description to the Website Coordinator.

In May, the Heart of America Chapter met sharing bells they had gotten from Jane.  Jane, a much loved ABA member, died suddenly in April.


“ABA on the national/international and chapter levels would resonate with everyone.  Since my first meeting years ago I have been greatly blessed in so many ways, but most importantly by the wonderful people  whom I have met and the special friendships that I treasure.”
