Members and staff collaborated with Swampscott High School students to create a quilt honoring Black History. Throughout the months of January and February we cut, glued, ironed and stitched together. The construction of this beautiful masterpiece was led by our very own Diane Reynolds with sewing help from Roberta Stoller and several other Senior Center quilters. Many thanks to the students and senior center members who participated in this project and to Temitope Bailey, Room of Color Coordinator, METCO and J.V. Basketball Coach for Swampscott High School and our Senior Center Salem State Social Work interns, Joelle L’Heureux and Olivia Lynch for all of their help coordinating this effort.
