The Community Quilt Project is back and has grown. Come participate in this project and hear stories from other communities as it has traveled around. Each participant will create a square to be added onto the larger quilt sheet to show how you define ‘community’ and what does it mean to you? Is it your town and neighborhood? Is it your family and friends? Is it a network of online folks you speak to often but rarely see? Is it medical staff that is helping you through an illness? It means many things to each of us. Come join our community and participate in this family friendly project!
