Fond farewell: 18Aug2013

The Miami Guild of change Ringers and Trinity Cathedral’s Clergy & Staff wish to bid a fond adieu to the Cathedral’s Belltower Captain Thomas Alspaugh.  Words are difficult to find to offer sufficient thanks for all the Thomas has done for us; not only handling “the steeple keep” of the precious bells, but also growing the bell ringing band.  Under Thomas’ leadership the bells are now in pristine working condition, instructional materials & a simulator are available for teaching new and seasoned ringers, a process has been established to organize ringing practices and services, and al least seven new ringers have been trained alone by Thomas to get them up to speed with the existing band of ringers. These are only some of Thomas’ many accomplishments here at Trinity.  We will miss him as he and his wife move back to the Washington DC area.
