South Bend was awarded the prestigious <br /> All-American City Award in 2011 and the city was asked to submit a square for the quilt. <br /> Buttigieg, along with Heather Short-Davis, founder of Tinkx, a virtual communications <br /> firm, will reveal South Bend's square Monday, January 30 from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. <br /> "It is an honor for the City of South Bend to be awarded the All-American City Award. I <br /> am happy to reveal our city's square of the quilt," said Buttigieg. <br /> Short-Davis created South Bend's square for the quilt after volunteering once she heard <br /> about the tour. <br /> "We should all lend our talents to the community and this was a place in which I could <br /> help. There are lots of images to choose from here in South Bend, which made it easy for <br /> me to bring the city's uniqueness to our square," said Short-Davis. <br /> A panel of jurors chose South Bend and nine other communities to receive the honor after <br /> a three-day competition held by the National Civic League. The quilt will be displayed at <br /> the Civil Rights Heritage Center at 1044 West Washington Street. <br /> The special viewing hours for the quilt are from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. from Tuesday, <br /> January 31 to Friday, February 3. <br /> For more information, please call the Civil Rights Heritage Center at 574-307-6135. <br /> 1400 COUNTY-CITY BUILDING•227 W.JEFFERSON BOULEVARD•SOUTH BEND,INDIANA 46601 <br /> PHONE 574/235-9261 • FAx 574/235-9892 <br />
