UNCG’s Vacc Bell Tower will soon have more bells. Work is ahead of schedule and it’s possible the bells, a gift of Dr. Nancy Vacc, may be in place and pealing their beautiful sounds at the night of the lighting of the bell tower, Dec. 1.
“They’re pulling brackets off right now,” said Jason Allison on Tuesday morning. The new brackets were near the tower, ready for installation.
There will be 49 bells. Forty-eight or more bells are considered a full carillon, said Stacey Dickerson of Verdin. By way of context, Duke Chapel has about the same number, 50 bells.
