A History That Goes Back to February of 1981
The Ridge Ringers Handbell Choir has a history that goes back to February of 1981. Alice Flemming, a retired Jefferson County School District Music Teacher, donated two octaves of new Malmark Handbells as well as handbell music to Wheat Ridge Presbyterian Church.
She organized the handbell choir and was the first Director. The excitement surrounding the bell choir soon attracted more members, and the church responded by purchasing a third octave of Malmark Handbells bringing the total to 37 bells.
