To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice signing to end World War I, the Mount Hope Cemetery will host ringing of the bells from the Singing Tower (campanile) at 11am on Sunday, November 11, the time the Armistice went into effect. A wreath will be laid to commemorate those who served in the war and are laid to rest at Mount Hope. All are welcome to attend.
