quiltWere quilts used as signals for escaping slaves along the Underground Railroad?  With the tradition of oral, not written, history, and the daily use of quilts (none left now), there is no actual proof that such was the case.  But isn't it an interesting theory?  Come learn about the quilt patterns and their secret meanings, and browse through the many books - both adult and children's - that are written about this theme.

We are having this week's Savvy Senior Series program on this topic at Hickory Lake Apartments on Thursday Oct 6 at 2:00 PM. Please join us........and bring a friend!
