Darien 5-Minute Bell Ringing: A Thank-You to Healthcare Workers, First Responders in COVID-19 Epidemic
Ring Your Bells for five minutes, Loud and Proud, Darien, to thank first responders and healthcare workers during the COVID-19 battle. It doesn’t have to be a bell — just make a noise outside your home for these Saturdays from 7 to 7:05 p.m.: April 25, May 2, 9 and 16. It starts at 7 p.m. sharp. In this continuing event, First Selectman Jayme Stevenson is encouraging Darien residents to ring a bell, bang a pot or otherwise make a noise for several minutes
The ringing, gonging, honking and yelling takes place rain or shine, right from your own window, door or, as the announcement suggests, “your front lawn or front steps.” “From 7 to 7:05, come stand on your front lawn or front steps and ring cowbells, shake holiday bells, bang a pot and pan or simply clap hands,” the announcement says.
