Bells of Peace

On Sunday, November 11, at sunset (4:46 pm), communities across Canada will mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War with the ringing of 100 bells. The ringing of bells emulates the moment in 1918 when church bells across Europe tolled as four years of war had come to an end. Several churches in Prince Edward County will participate in the Bells of Peace.

Please note: The County of Prince Edward provides this information as a service to the general public.
