The 2013 All-America City quilt will be on public display in various locations in Garner April 21-27.
Each year, finalists in the All-America City Award program submit quilt squares representing something special about their communities. The squares are stitched together into a quilt that tours the country, visiting each finalist community.
Garner’s square was made by Linda Junk with the non-profit group On the Mend, which is based at Garner Senior Center.
