Celebrating Jim: 14Jan2018

“Today was a most special day at the Cathedral as we were saying goodbye to Jim who is moving to Pittsburgh, Pa.  It certainly was a bitter sweet experience as we know we will be missing Jim but at the same time we are wishing him well.  He and I made a personal date to come back to Miami and ring with the band again many times!   If you look very closely at the group photo you will find Judy, Marguerite and Rob.  I, of course, was taking the photo :).”  Bobbie

“Good afternoon Ringers, first let me thank all of you for the most enjoyable party we had last evening at Robert’s and JC’s!  All of the food was so yummy in a lovely apartment. We even enjoyed Barbara’s company!!!!!  I am so very grateful for all of the kind words Rob and others shared with me last night and I LOVE the CD!!!
It is I who am truly grateful for each of you.  You have welcomed me, taught me, have been patient with me and have befriended me.  So, I truly count my blessings for being able to learn a brand new challenging skill thanks to each of you.  I promise you that we will ring together in the future!”    Bobbie

Kirkenes: 27Jan2018

Miami bell tower ringers get around!  Kirkenes, is a small town in far northeastern Norway, close to the Finnish and Russian borders, known for its views of the Aurora Borealis – the Northern Lights.

“Homeward bound now, and fairly bouncy, as we’re out in the open ocean along Norway’s north coast.  The pictures are of the fiord as we left Kirkenes and the water was freezing in places.  The sun was already going down at 12.30 and reflecting pink off the snow.  There’s an iceberg up ahead but you can’t easily make it out.”   Pamela

Today was a most special day at the Cathedral as we were saying goodbye to Jim who is moving to Pittsburgh, PA.  It certainly was a bitter sweet experience as we know we will be missing Jim but at the same time we are wishing him well.  He and I made a personal date to come back to Miami and ring with the band again many times!  I have attached photo of today’s farewell in Fellowship Hall.  If you look very closely at the group photo you will find Judy, Marguerite and Rob. I, of course, was taking the photo :).
God speed Jim – we all love you!!!!!
