Isabelle Butters, former mayor and chair of Weyburn’s Centennial Committee, has a close look at the historic bell which used to hang in Weyburn’s old post office, as part of the clock mechanism in the clock tower, before that building was torn down to make way for Casteel Van Dusen. The bell will be rung on Friday, Sept. 13, at noon by Mayor Debra Button, to commemorate the day that Weyburn was officially incorporated as a city back in 1913. The bell, which was cast in 1913, was bought by Norm Mryglod from the contractor who demolished the post office, and it will be donated to the city to be showcased, possibly using bricks from the Weyburn Collegiate as it was built in 1913, and is slated for demolition later this year. The bell doesn’t have a clapper, as it was struck by a mechanism of the clock; it weighs just over 700 pounds, measures 32 inches wide at the bottom, and was cast by John Taylor bell foundry in Loughbrough, England. It was sent to Canada as one of six bells all of a similar size in July of 1913; the other bells all went to municipal buildings in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia.
