The Bell Tower Community Foundation treated the county supervisors to Deal’s apple cider donuts with birthday candles to mark the Mahanay Memorial Carillon Tower’s 52nd birthday Monday. The supervisors were game enough to sing the birthday song in return for the donuts.
Foundation president Carole Custer also presented the board with a framed certificate commemorating the dedication of the 47-bell carillon two years ago.
Supervisor Pete Bardole, ex officio member of the foundation, accepted the certificate. He and supervisor Dawn Rudolph are both the same age as the bell tower – 52.
