AUBURN — The public is invited to the exhibit of “KindSpring,” a quilt created by local Green Dot L-A members, at the Auburn Public Library lobby in August and September.

As a local volunteer initiative committed to making the community a better and safer place, Green Dot Lewiston-Auburn offers strategies for safe and effective responses to hurtful and hateful words and behaviors. The quilt’s design conveys the program’s central image of positive “green dot” actions that people can learn in response to negative “red dot” incidents of harassment or violence.

Quilters Kitsie Claxton, Eileen Fair, Linda Matzen, Wendy Mitchell and Patty Weidler designed and stitched the quilt, Betsy Dorr provided the machine quilting and June Zellers’ calligraphy completed the piece.

The library, a Green Dot partner, will also host training programs for the public this fall.
