Without community support, the Mir Lecture Series is not possible. Selkirk College recognizes the generous donors who help make it a reality with a beautiful hand crafted quilt.
In January, 2014 a group of donors joined together with Selkirk College staff for the unveiling of the Mir Centre for Peace Lecture Series endowment quilt. The quilt now stands as recognition for all those who helped make the Mir Lecture Series an important part of West Kootenay-Boundary life.
The recognition wall came to life thanks to the USCC Ladies Cultural Interpretive Society who tasked five Castlegar quilters. The quilters involved included: Mary Podzdnekoff, Timmie Jean Tack, Joy Rogers, Paulette Markin and Verna Chernoff.
