Fall Festival – VOLUNTEER! Sunday, October 6

There are lots of ways to serve – greet visitors or assist with parking, catch pontoon boats or walk horses at the arena, drive a boat or a tractor, take tickets or money, serve food, paint faces, or help with set-up or clean-up! Volunteer and support DuBois Center. Your efforts really do make a big difference!

It’s Quilt Time!

Quilt 1
The clock is ticking…the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival is just one month away and so is the much-anticipated Quilt Drawing!
This year, two beautiful and unique quilts have been donated. Both are queen-size. One is a stunning block pattern in steel blue and tan – elaborate machine stitching makes the back side nearly as beautiful as the front. The second quilt could have come right out of an elegant log cabin in the Southwest.
With these works of art, we hope to raise a minimum of $2,000. You can help by spreading the word!
A flyer with pictures is available to assist. You are also invited to sell tickets and display one or more of the quilts at your church on a Sunday morning or during a special event. Contact Carol Shanks at shanks@htc.net or 618-920-2904 to reserve a quilt.
Thank you for your support of DuBois Center! Join us at Fall Festival from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, October 6 to see who wins the quilts!

Got Frames?

Frames! Frames! BIG FRAMES! Fancy frames, simple frames, colorful frames – all are welcome. We are on the hunt for larger frames for our “Picture Yourself at DuBois Center” effort. Minimum size needed is 2ft x 2 ft, but the bigger the better!
Frame donations are needed prior to Fall Festival – October 6 – so they can be prepped and put into place. Questions? Contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@duboiscenter.org or 618-787-2202.
