Oakmont residents are stitching together more than a century’s worth of memories.
To celebrate the borough’s 125th birthday, the Riverview Community Action Corporation is selling fabric squares that will become part of an “Our Town” quilt.
The 6-inch squares of fabric, which will include the family name of participants, are available starting Tuesday, Oct. 1 for $1 each.
Participants may decorate the squares using paint, embroidery, appliqué and more.
The finished pieces must be returned to the RCAC, located at 501 Second Street in Oakmont, by Nov. 27.
The RCAC’s “sewing ladies,” then will assemble the quilt, which will be displayed at various venues throughout the town before settling into a permanent home at the RCAC.
The squares are limited to one per family. For more information, contact RCAC program director Lynn Verratti at 412-828-1062 or email@example.com
