The 10th annual Ringing in the Season concert, staged on Dec. 5 at the First Congregational Church of Camden, was a resounding success, musically and as a fundraiser.

The handbell concert, part of Christmas by the Sea, was presented to a packed audience; and a grand total of $1,072.92 was collected in a free-will offering to support the Camden Area Christian Food Pantry.
