Donate Your Sweet Treats

sweet treats

Cookies! Cakes! Pies! Breads! Snack Mixes! The Sweet Shoppe at Fall Festival is still in need of donations. Each dollar raised in this area goes directly to providing scholarships and enable children and youth from families that are struggling financially to attend camp. This team is doing a great job, but they need YOUR help! So apron up and bake on!

For more information, check out and share this flyer or text/call Melissa at 314-440-6646 or Kristen at 618-567-6863.

Volunteers Still Needed for Fall Festival

FF Volunteers2

Calling all church groups, individuals, families, scout troops and youth needing service hours – lend a hand for a couple hours or for the full day! Fall Festival is DuBois Center’s biggest one-day event of the year and would not be possible without the efforts of scores of volunteers.

There are so many ways to help – prep and serve food, paint faces, supervise crafts and activities in the Kidz Korner, catch pontoon boats, walk horses in the arena, take tickets, assist guests in the Upscale Resale Shop or serve as a cashier.

Sound like fun? Contact DuBois Center at 618-787-2202 or dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org.

QUILTS – Don’t miss out!!

Quilt

The countdown continues… only one week until the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival and the much anticipated Quilt Drawing. This year, three beautiful and unique quilts have been donated. One is a salute to our 50 states (twin); one has an elegant diamond-star pattern (queen); and one has fun blocks in shades of brown and gold (queen). With these gems, we hope to raise a minimum of $2000.

You can help by spreading the word! A flier with photos and tickets are available to assist. There is still time to buy or sell tickets. Tickets and payments must be returned to DuBois Center by noon the day of Fall Festival – Sunday, Oct 7.
