Quilt Garden Dedication and Pink Promenade
Saturday, July 28, 2012, 7:00 pm
The Quilt Garden Dedication and Pink Promenade will occur on Saturday evening, July 28, during Berne's annual Swiss Days celebration.
Guests to the plaza will enjoy a pre-dedication concert at 7 p.m. with the talents of the Bernished Brass and the First Missionary Church quartet providing entertainment.
The dedication will commence at 7:30 p.m. with Jennifer (Mertz) Will as the keynote speaker. Jennifer is a South Adams graduate of 1998 who is a breast cancer survivor and started the "Ribbon Chicks" organization to be a support group for younger women who deal with breast cancer and help with the special needs of these younger women as they deal with their cancer and how it affects their relationships as wife and mother.
Music and recognition of honored guests will round out the ceremony before guests enjoy the ribbon cutting at the three quilt gardens. Pink balloons will be launched and the Pink Promenade will begin under the tower. The promenade, a leisurely stroll around the plaza, will be by registration only with proceeds going for breast cancer research and the maintenance of the quilt gardens.
The First Bank of Berne is providing sponsorship.
