Town crier presents bell to Pattison Elementary School

The Pattison Elementary School in Milford held a bell dedication ceremony June 3.

The new bell, which was acquired by official Clermont County town crier Bill Knepp on a recent vacation to Branson, Missouri, was presented to the elementary school by the Milford-Miami Glen performing Arts amidst much pomp and circumstance.

“It is the pleasure and the honor of the Milford/Miami Glen organization and your town crier to present what we hope is the first of many school bells that we wish to present to the Milford School District,” Knepp said to those assembled.

When Pattison Elementary opened five years ago, principal Gregg Curless approached Knepp with the idea of acquiring a bell for the school.
