The Blue Ridge Ringers is governed by By-Laws, with officers and a board of directors. We
are supported by honoraria for our appearances, an occasional grant, and sometimes member dues .
The Blue Ridge Ringers ring five octaves of Malmark handbells and five octaves of Malmark tone
chimes. We are most grateful for the generous use of practice space and time, and some sharing of equipment at the First
United Methodist Church of Hendersonville. We appreciate assistance as well from several other churches: First Presbyterian,
Fletcher United Methodist, Pinecrest Presbyterian, Sacred Heart and other churches in the area. We acquired our own handbells
in November 2001 and continue to practice in the Bell Room at First United Methodist Church on Monday afternoons.
