The Centennial Quilt

Centennial QuiltThe quilt underscores the unity which exists between Chelmsford and Azilda.  It was created by Mrs. Carolyn Wahamaa, who worked on this project for five months.  The quilt was officially presented to the Town of Rayside-Balfour during the closing ceremony on December 28, 1991.

This quilt is divided into ten decades with each composition representing the progressive development of that particular period.  The central piece, entitled Between Friends, was created in such a way as to symbolize the harmony existing in the towns of Rayside-Balfour, Azilda, and Chelmsford, as well as between Anglophone and Francophone residents, with each party maintaining its own identity.
