Co-President Tom believes the thief has to be quick and nimble because the Bell disappeared so FAST!

THE BELL IS MISSING

Co-President Tom:

Tom is making due with his Educator's Bell he received for 35 years of service in educating our youth.

As the Bell Tolls:  Tips Received, Suspect Spotted and Investigation is Underway

 

Dear Fellow Rotarians:

Co-President Tom was in the act of being Rotarian nice and socializing after our club meeting on August 15, 2022.
Yes....he took his eyes off the Bell for just a split second and it seems now to be missing.
 
Recently, acting on a sound tip and believing the thief has to be quick and nimble, Co-President Tom has been investigating tips.  Along with his new Sheriff and  while all the agents are looking out for the missing Rotary bell, surveillance video emerged and showed the missing bell probably involved a prominent member of our club. Experts are now checking the authenticity of the video before the take action.
 
REscUE EFFORTS:  While we wait for any ransom notices, we are collecting donations to organize rescue efforts.
Your donation goes back into the local community where it is best needed and is tax deductible as allowed by law.  Thank you for donating to the community where Rotarians Serve to Change Lives.
 
If anyone has information on the location of the Rotary Bell, please let us know right away so a rescue team can be appointed.  If you can capture any photos, email them to admin@walnutgroverotary.org.
 
DESCRIPTION:  Bronze coloring, with special marking dating back to 1948.  Has a beautiful voice when nudged.  Please stay on the lookout.

DISCLOSURE:  This is just a GAME.  Feel free to participate in our recovery efforts.  THANKS!  There are stories about previous Bell shenanigans at this link:  As the Bell Tolls!
