Bicentennial quilts to be dedicated

Dotty Lane Published:

The Munroe Falls Historical Society will be dedicating quilts and banners from the Ohio Bicentennial Quilt Project at 10 a.m. March 1 at Munroe Falls City Hall.

The quilt project, sponsored by the historical society, is a project with Riverview School under the direction of art teacher Judy Newhall. Students and staff members have signed their names on quilt blocks that will be assembled by society members into quilt tops or banners.

A group of students selected by Newhall also have completed quilt blocks for a quilt top with a historical focus on Ohio. A student will ring the City Hall bell at the ceremony on March 1 to commemorate the official date of Ohios 200th birthday.

The historical museum will be open until noon after the quilt dedication to allow visitors to view the Ohio bicentennial exhibit, which will be on display through mid-June. The museum is located at 83 Munroe Falls Ave. next to City Hall. The event is free and open to the public.
