When Michael Kohn, director of the bell choir at Zion Lutheran Church, Lexington, S.C., was invited to ring the Salvation Army bell at a grocery store during the Christmas season, he brought an entire handbell choir.
"What's fun is to see the smile on people's faces when they walk in," Kohn told a local TV station. "It's always a look of surprise. People may not be expecting anything, but if they are it's just a little bell. ... When they come in and hear the full handbell choir it's a real sense of surprise for them."
