Bells of Peace Program: A World War I Remembrance

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Yorktown’s Grace Church and other local houses of worship are participating in this bell ringing program.

The armistice between the Allies and Germany took effect on the eleventh hour on
the eleventh day of the eleventh month in 1918. To honor American men and women who served 100 years ago in World War I, and all of those who have served, at precisely 11 a.m., bells will ring 21 times at the National  Cathedral, numerous participating places of worship, and other community locations across the country. The York County WWI & WWII Commemoration Committee is participating in this program by sponsoring a bell ringing in front of York Hall, 301 Main St., Yorktown. This nationwide observance is sponsored by the World War One Centennial Commission, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion and several other groups.
