Birchwood Village commemorated the 100th anniversary of the World War I Armistice on Sunday with the ringing of our newly installed bell.  The bell was tolled at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month.  David Doughty (our bell tower builder) did the honors for us while about 20 residents looked on.  Other bells in the White Bear Lake area also sounded for the august moment.  It was fitting that we finished off with tolling the bell 11 times.  Here is a picture of Dave in action.
