      Last year the Parkdale Community Church, Parkdale, Oregon, celebrated its 100th birthday but no ringing of the bell. The rafters and frame of the bell tower were just too rotten and there was a fear that the vibrations from the gong would bring it all down. So a group of Parkdale Volunteers spent the morning taking the tower and bell down and are now working to rebuild the tower and soon the bell will toll again. Anything you can share about this bell would be appreciated: The C.S. Bell Co #32 Yoke. We’re doing some research on our end in the hopes of finding some information on how the bell traveled from Ohio to Oregon. I just found out it was actually in another church in the valley around 1904 and was moved to the ‘New Church’ in 1911. Will certainly share anything we find out anything if you’d like. I’ve taken some photos. Not sure if I can share and how I might do that.
