Quick Fact Friday 2020-05-22
Posted on May 22nd, 2020

Dr. DuPre's quilt was refurbished by the Mount Pleasant Historical Commission for the town's citizens in the mid-1990s. The history of the quilt, as well as the identification of the quilters, was extensively researched by historian Mary Julia Royall. Additionally, due to its age, the quilt needed to be stabilized and professionally mounted for display purposes. These services were provided by Tricia Boyd of Tricia Studios. Dr. DuPre's quilt is on permanent display in the History Room at Mount Pleasant Town Hall. If you are interested in taking a look, please contact Kate Dolan at kdolan@tompsc.com.
Don't forget to join our new #MtPandMe for the month of May. We invite the children of the community to help us collect stories and pictures highlighting things learned and activities undertaken during this historic quarantine.
Here's how it works:
○         Create artwork, draw or color a picture related to quarantine activities
○         Post a pic of your creation or picture to Instagram
○         Tag @MtPleasantHistory in the post
○         Use the hashtag #MtPandMe in the caption or comments
A sampling of submittals will be included in our Quarantine Time Capsule to inform future generations of Mount Pleasant residents.
Stay strong, Mount Pleasant!
