APSU Art professors Cindy Marsh was on hand with a Goldsmith press to make quilt pieces of memories of 9/11. The public was invited to make a quilt piece using the press with sentiments and memories they have of where they were or what they were doing on September 11, 2001.
The quilt pieces will be taken back to APSU for construction of a memorial quilt which will be displayed at the library and other places.
In 2011, Hands on Clarksville along with the citizens of Clarksville-Montgomery County participated in a call to serviced sponsored by the Corporation for National and Community Service on the 10th anniversary of 9/11. More than 900 volunteers came together and served from September 1 – 11 to honor 9/11 victims, survivors, and others who rose up in service in response to the attacks and especially to honor or local military and their families for their service.
Clarksville was one of only 13 organizations across the country receiving a distinguished award from CNS.
