Mount Union College Re-Dedicates Quilt in Celebration of Women's History Month
April 22, 2010
National Women's History Month is a time not only for women on Mount Union's campus, but all students, faculty and administration alike to celebrate and appreciate the great accomplishments women have made throughout history.
In honor of this month, Mount Union College re-dedicated the National Women's History Month Quilt. The ceremony was held on March 16 at 10:30 a.m. on the second floor of the Library in the Kolenbrander-Harter Information Center (KHIC).
The quilt was originally dedicated during Women's History Month in 2001. Work on the quilt began during Women's History Month in 1997. Quilt squares were distributed to members of the Mount Union and Alliance communities on which participants put their designs.
In the fall, the completed squares were collected, and at the end of 1997 quilting began. Quilters, which included students, faculty and community residents, gathered once a week nearly every week throughout the school year to work on the project that is now displayed in KHIC.
