The Belfry Project – Jim Heimbach’s photos

Jim Heimbach sent me, April 12, 2014,  about 170 photos on the creation of the belfry. There are plans and a systematic coverage of the contruction from Dec. 1, 2009 to  May 30, 2010 with his photos. Thanks, Jim for all of your efforts!  Pictures are at the end of this article.

In addition he included a video of Helmut ringing the bell for the first time at Christmas Eve, 2009. (He also sent me pictures of the attic which will be posted at another time.) 

It’s a good time to look since April, 2010 it was substantially complete. We’re  at Easter time which causes us to look back on many events.

The belfry was re-dedicated on Belfry Celebration Day, Oct. 7, 11:00am.
