      Bell from Norris Elementary School finds new home

      The bell in front of the former Norris Elementary School in Leelanau County found a new home on Tuesday in Elmwood Township.

      The bell in front of the former Norris Elementary School in Leelanau County found a new home on Tuesday in Elmwood Township.

      Team Elmer's donated the cost to move the bell to its new location at Elmwood Township Hall Complex on 10090 E. Lincoln Rd.

      Two time capsules sit within the brick surrounding the bell. The time capsules are to be opened in 2027.

      Elmwood Township Officials hope the bell will encourage people to continue celebrating the township's heritage.

      Anne Rodgers was a teacher at Norris for 20 years and says the bell represents a lot of good things about the Elmwood Township.
