No train whistles, now no church bells

By on July 15, 2009

There will be no bells ringing on the hour from the Elburn Community Congregational Church—at least until the church gets its leaking roof fixed.

Here, church secretary Linda Miller (right) and church member Dave Royer detach the sound system for the carillon bells that chime in Elburn.

The church is running a “Give Your Fair Square” campaign to pay for the shingles to fix the leaks that have plagued the building. At almost halfway to its goal of 40 squares at $400 a square, the church is hopeful they can raise the funds.

For further information, call Miller at (630) 365-6544 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily.
