Thanksgiving. Other photos that taken during the Cross Country Event phase

Annual Art Show for "Grey like the Wind" at the Henrietta Acampora Blue Point Cottage on October 29th, 2010.

From Diana Berthold: The Healing Quilt has been featured on FIOS and NOT IN OUR TOWN where it will be aired on PBS this January. Diana Berthold is also meeting with author Mirta Ojito regarding her new book. She has written “Finding Manana” about her boat exodus from Cuba in 1980. Please check out about the Patchogue-Medford Healing Hands and Mending Hearts Quilt which is featured in the old “Jay’s Fabric” windows on South Ocean Avenue just south of Main Street in Patchogue as part of the Patchogue Art Walk. There you will the triptych quilt as well as the square one which was to inspired people to get involved and communicate as well as the one done by women of the Patchogue-Medford Library and the Pilot Club.

I hope that you will take time to see it as it will come down just after Thanksgiving when it begins it’s journey throughout the community’s churches, temple, and schools as a way to encourage dialogue regarding diversity.
