Saturday, February 25, 2017, 13 choirs and over 125 ringers gathered at the First United Methodist Church in Benton, AR, for State Festival. After many requests from attendees in past years, Tammy Waldrop returned to be our clinician. The ringers and Tammy worked hard through four hours of rehearsals, and then presented the traditional program at 3 p.m. The ringers loved Tammy, and all said they learned a lot from her. The board wishes to thank her and Dr. Ron Hall of the church for making it a very successful festival.
