Hmong Tapestry Exhibit @ East Fishkill Commnity Library Tickets
Jun 1 – Jun 30 all-day
Hmong Tapestry Exhibit @ East Fishkill Commnity Library |  |  |

The Library is pleased to host a month long exhibit of Hmong Tapestry shared with us by Wappingers resident Collean Butler.

Here is the background of these tapestries:

Sr. Ruth Ann Baudry, a native of Eden, WI, is a member of the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Agnes. Their motherhouse is located in Fon du Lac, Wisconsin.

Sr. Ruth Ann worked at St Patrick’s Church in Fon du Lac with the Hmong immigrants during the 1970s. Part of her ministry included helping the immigrants find housing and services. She recalls the immigrants as a gentle and thoughtful people. Her fond memory is helping them to make 750 egg rolls for the parish festival! Their love of Sr. Ruth Ann was shown by the many story tapestries they presented to her over the years. There is still a small enclave of Hmong families in Fon du Lac, but most have moved to Florida or Minnesota. Unfortunately, the parish of St. Patrick’s has since closed it’s doors, but once a month a priest from Sheboygan comes to Fon du Lac to say Mass in the native language.

When Sr. Ruth Ann was getting ready to move to the Senior Center residence, I was lucky enough to be the recipient of some of her tapestries and am happy to share them with you today. – Collean Butler
