Sheridan’s Rotary Club received a traveling plaque Thursday as the winner of the Salvation Army’s Team Bell Ringing Challenge.
Team Rotary raised over $3,600 ringing the bell for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.
Gary J. Dobney, the Salvation Army’s envoy-in-charge, named the other participating teams in the challenge during the Rotary Club’s luncheon.
Alll eight teams in the challenge raised a combined total of over $12,000. Dobney noted the Sheridan Rotary raised about one-quarter of the funds generated in the challenge.
Non-team volunteer bell-ringers raised another $14,000-plus for a combined total of nearly $26,500. In a news release issued earlier, Dobney said the total gross income raised from all of the Salvation Army’s kettles in 2020 exceeded $54,000. That figure includes paid bell-ringers.
He said teams interested in entering the Salvation Army Team Bell Ringing Challenge this year shyould contact Dave Engles, who’s the Team Bell Ringing coordinator.
Individuals interested in being either volunteer or paid bell ringers this year can contact Dobney.
