ON A LIGHTER NOTE: OUR CAMEO IN “THE GREAT BIG STORY” ABOUT FRANCE’S FAMILY OF BELL MAKERS

We were recently approached by a producer of CNN’s The Great Big Story asking if we would be willing to share our video of Lou, Michelle, Alan, and Jim Verdin basking in — and being a little deafened by — the World Peace Bell when we were in Cincinnatti, Ohio. The World Peace Bell was cast by Paccard Fonderie des Cloches in France, the family-run bell foundry featured in the Great Big Story segment. We were happy to oblige, and you can see the whole piece here. It’s fun to see our reactions once again to just how. Loud. That. Bell. Was.

Like Paccard Fonderie des Cloches, the foundry that cast our bell has deep family roots. The Verdin Bell Company has been making bells in America for 175 years, with six generations of Verdins leading the way. We are delighted to see the passion that both the Paccard and Verdin families put into their craft, and are overjoyed at having the Verdins as a partner in our mission.
