      Chapter Chairman and his bell collection are featured in the newspaper!

      Thanks to the kindness of a Bell Friend and ABA Member from Missouri, I have learned about a wonderful article that appeared in the Worcester (Mass.) Telegram today. You, too, can read the article by clicking on this link: http://www.telegram.com/article/20100830/NEWS/8300341/1116.

      New England Chapter chairman, Dick Bartkus not only got his story printed in the paper, the website for the Telegram has three great pictures and a 1 minute, 45 second video showing Dick and his bells! The two smaller pictures can be enlarged by clicking on them and the video can be seen by either clicking on the triangle in the middle of the picture or by going to this link: http://link.brightcove.com/services/player/bcpid1336871426?bctid=597558367001.

      Kudos go to Dick for not only getting his story featured in one of Massachusetts’ major newspapers, he was also able to get the reporter to put in a link to the ABA website! Good job, Dick!
