EAST HAMPTON, Conn. (WTNH) -- Bevin Brothers Manufacturing put the bell in Belltown and even though fire destroyed the 180-year-old plant in May it didn't stomp out the company's spirit.
The Bevin Brothers participated in the town's 34th annual Old Home Days parade on Saturday.
Matt Bevin says he plans to rebuild the company at it's original location and says its presence in the parade is important for it and the town.
"It's a visual representation of the fact that this company is still here," he said. "It is a part of this community and the bells are ringing."
Bevin and his 98-year-old-grandmother Lorraine, who is fourth generation bell maker, were joined by workers who proudly paraded through town.
"What do you want the folks in town to know about Bevin Brothers," asked News 8's Tina Detelj.
"Just that we're not done yet," replied employee Judy Hensel. "We'll be back and there will be bells in B elltown."
Folks can also support the company by buying a commemorative box, filled with a history of the company and one of the bells which survived the fire.
All proceeds go to the rebuilding effort.

"It has lots of sound and we're hoping for it again," Lorraine Bevin said.
It's a hope shared by many.
