National Youth Service Day will be coming to the Juneau-Douglas City Museum on Friday April 15 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., when 12 local teenagers grades 7 through 12 will help construct the Diversity Quilt that began as part of the arts activity fair held in conjunction with the City Wide Diversity Week Celebrations. At the fair, six-inch squares of fabric were decorated by Juneau youth with images symbolizing what makes them different, special and unique. The result is over 30 brightly colored panels that will comprise the Diversity Quilt. The quilting will be held at the City Museum from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Juneau-Douglas City Museum is at 4th and Main streets and is a program of Juneau Parks and Recreation Department. For more information, call 586-3572.
