The Chime Loan Program for Kansas is looking for someone to host our 3 octave set of chimes.  If you or someone you know is interested in this wonderful education opportunity, please contact our Chime Chair Shirley Myers. Our chimes are free to use for elementary, middle and high school music courses.  We also provide a one-year membership to Handbell Musicians of America for the group.
