If you are looking for something fun to do and/or something that will help other people, then you should make plans to attend Girls Night Out at the Ben's Bells studio.

According to the Bethel Patch, the event will take place on June 9, and founder Jeannette Mare will be a guest speaker. The Ben's Bells Project is something that was started after Mare's 2-year-old son, Ben, passed away. She explains on the website how the kindness they were shown after their son's death helped them cope. That's when they started the Ben's Bells Project, making these bells with clay and putting them all over Tucson (where they lived) for people to find. A message is also attached to each one.

We found a Ben's Bell a few months ago and I was ecstatic. I have always wanted to find one and now a bell is hanging in our home for all who visit to see. Every time I look at it I smile, because I know it was made with kindness.

We are lucky enough to have a studio close by, so if you ever want to volunteer to make a bell you don't have too far to go. They are always looking for people to help and a lot of people will get a group together and make it a fun group activity. That's kind of what June 9 will be with their Girls Night Out.

  • It will happen at the Ben's Bells Bethel studio: 32 Stony Hill Road, Bethel, CT.
