Join us for “Bells of Peace” on Zoom
Thank you for participating in Bells of Peace: A World War I bell tolling remembrance on November 11th, Veterans Day to honor all those who served and sacrificed in WWI
“Bells of Peace” was created to commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the World War I Armistice, November 11, 2018. The Doughboy Foundation has since promoted it as an annual remembrance of those who served in WWI and of the moment when the guns fell silent, and bells tolled on the Western Front… on the 11th day of the 11th month, at the 11th hour in 1918, after four years of brutal combat.
