Sesquicentennial Quilt Retirement & Replacement – We need your help!

Sesquicentennial Quilt Retirement & Replacement – We need your help!

At the Annual Meeting in May of 2022, the congregation voted to retire the Sesquicentennial Quilt. The resolution that passed overwhelmingly (88%) said:

Therefore, be it resolved that Albany UU accepts the recommendations of the Inclusivity Team and the Ministry and Operations Team to take down and preserve the Sesquicentennial Quilt, and convene a task force to propose a future for the quilt and the space it currently occupies subject to approval by the congregation.

Join us on Sunday, Sept 18 at 11:30 AM to create that task force to develop:

  • an event to commemorate the quilt’s retirement
  • documentation of the quilt’s history
  • preservation and storage
  • draft guidelines for future public art at Albany UU and a replacement recommendation
  • make a presentation for a congregational meeting about how to use the space the quilt currently occupies
