Please take a moment to visit the 1st floor of city hall and view the display in the rotunda. The quilt will be on display from Tuesday, November 27th until Friday, December 7th.

This handmade quilt is a memorial remembrance that offers families and individuals the opportunity to remember loved ones by creating a 10" square memorializing their loved one. The squares are sewed together by volunteers to create an approximate 48" x 48" quilt. The quilt hangs from a dowel between two 5" wooden clothes racks.
