        Patchwork of History" is a major event of the Bicentennial that will feature a quilt show spanning over 100 years and history displays of social and service organizations that have a long term history in Switzerland County.

Each quilt in the exhibit will have a story card with it, which will include the owner’s name, the name of the quilt pattern, who made the quilt, when it was made, and any additional information the owner would like to share about the quilt or the quilt-maker.

The history displays of social and service organizations that are also a part of the “Patchwork of History” will feature the:

Eggleston Club

Julia Dumont Club

Center Square Baptist Church

Homemakers Clubs

Masons and Lodges

Lions Club

Sesquicentennial memorabilia ....including a scrapbook of photos  and articles organized by Stewart Hedger, who was the Vevay Newspaper editor at the time.
