Armistice Day Bells to Toll in Red Bluff

Bells will ring out in Red Bluff, marking the 100th anniversary of Armistice Day, on Sunday, November 11 at 11 a.m. 11 times at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church. Tolling in unison with bells throughout the world, this day marks the ending of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I between the Allies and Germany. Ranked among the deadliest conflicts in human history, an estimated 40 million military and civilian causalities occurred during the “Great War”. Approximately 4.7 million Americans stepped forward to serve, in which 2 million were deployed to fight overseas.

For decades in the United States, and elsewhere, Armistice Day was a holiday of peace, of sad remembrance and joyful ending of war, and of a commitment to preventing war in the future. This day later became known as Veteran’s Day in the aftermath of World War II and the Korean War, honoring all who have served and sacrificed.

The community is invited to honor those who served this nation by attending this ceremony. For more information contact St. Peter’s Episcopal Church at 527-5205 or admin@saintpetersepiscopal.org. St. Peter’s is located at 510 Jefferson Street, on the corner of Jefferson and Elm, in Red Bluff.
