Hartwell Carillion or Chimes

Inquiry re the carillion in Hartwell. I replied as follows for now:

"The original chimes were installed in 1955, as a memorial to WWII and Korean War vets. They were a mechanical chime that by the 1980s had begun to fail. In 1988 a new cassette tape drive system was installed, dedicated to Ron Watts, college emeriti. I believe that system has since been replaced as well, and am inquiring as to what is currently there. I’ll send you some scans of articles and so on soon."

Followup - did send a merged file of articles etc.
