On Monday, September 20 members of the Bristol Area Lions Club visited North Country Wind Bells in Chamberlain for a behind-the-scenes tour of the business. Connie Davidson and Paul Prentice run the company started in the 1970s by Connie’s father Jim Davidson. The original product line of 8 bells has expanded to include buoy bells and lighthouse bells from both East and West coasts, as well as wind catchers, scroll hangers, door stops, bookends, and a variety of home and garden accents. This family business prides itself on following green practices, for using local vendors for raw materials, and for recycling much of their scrap metal into usable items. Considerable handwork and pride goes into each of their Maine Made products. North Country Wind Bells was thanked for being a loyal supporter of the annual summer shed raffle organized by the Bristol Area Lions Club.

Following the tour, the Bristol Lions relocated to the Willing Workers Hall in New Harbor for a dinner meeting. The Club achieved a milestone during the evening, when Lion Andy Noyes inducted his son Damon Noyes into the Lions organization, the first father-son pair in the Bristol Area Lions chapter.

At the next meeting of the Bristol Area Lions Club on October 4, members will hear a presentation by Bud Elwin on his fantasy trip from the Baseball Hall of Fame to Fenway Park. To make dinner reservations for that meeting, or to learn more about the Bristol Area Lions Club please call Al Rottner at 677-2095.
