Salvation Army bell ringing to begin

The Rhinelander Salvation Army bell ringing season will kick off Friday, Nov. 17 at Shopko and Trig's.

Bell ringers will start shifts at Walmart on Friday, Nov. 24.

Organizers are always looking for more volunteers to ring bells.

"You can select a shift for Trig's and Walmart on our new website at," campaign organizers said in a press release. "This is a new system, and will require everyone who may have rang in the past to create a new login. To ring at Shopko, call coordinator Jan Leschke at 715-362-7157. Our shifts at Trig's and Walmart are open Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Each shift is 90 minutes. While it may be chilly outside, you will be warmed by the generosity of our community!"

This year's goal is to raise $40,000.
