Sentinel staff report–
Christmas carols can be heard playing from the bell tower at Sylvan Cemetery this season.

In a news release, the cemetery said the bells can be heard at the top and bottom of every hour, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m., through Christmas Day.

The cemetery’s bell tower, located at 7401 Auburn Blvd., was constructed a decade ago in honor the cemetery’s 150th anniversary. The tower’s existence is credited to two fomer board members, John Seekins and Jean Duncan, with the cemetery saying the bell tower “would not have been possible without either of them.”

The cemetery district said carols are being played in honor of the two late board members.

“We know it makes them proud to hear the bells ring. And we hope it helps to bring a little Christmas cheer to your day,” the district said.
