“Thank You” Christmas Party Rescheduled for March

Santa

This annual event is traditionally our opportunity to say THANK YOU!  Thank you for your prayers and support; your gifts of time, talent and treasure; and your partnership in our shared mission and ministry at DuBois Center.

This year we are certainly no less grateful, but we did take some extra time for reflection before sending out the invitations. Our lives are packed with holiday commitments… with family, church, friends, the crew from work, our social groups… We often have to choose between two, even three holiday gatherings on the same night. On top of that, it’s DARK outside, the weather is often questionable and the roads to DuBois Center are not the best – even in the daylight. This year the Outdoor Ministries Team would like to give you a different kind of gift – the gift of time, the gift of one less place to be, one less present to wrap, a free moment to… breathe.

We do hope you will join is March when we celebrate spring, new life and YOU! Thank you for a great year, and watch this space for details in January.

“Thank You” Christmas Party

Christmas Party 2017

The weather was perfect for DuBois Center’s annual “Thank You” Christmas Party. Volunteers, donors and staff – who are all essential to the success of DuBois Center – enjoyed good food, uproarious laughter, off-key singing and, of course, THE Christmas Game.

This year’s “Camp Christmas” theme lent itself to traditional summer camp décor and food, including BBQ pork steaks and a s’mores cake dessert. Did you know that both marshmallows and cauliflower taste great when roasted?!  A canoe and the Big Dipper were the backdrop for the ever-popular photo booth. Check out the shots of equestrian and marketing team volunteers, as well as Hickory Lodge renovators and a camp nurse and spouse.  There are more photos in our FaceBook album.

Special thanks to Norma Borgmann for the amazing appetizers (more of a meal), Rachel Kinzinger for the desserts, the Marketing Committee for the very fun decorations and activities, and to everyone who supported DuBois Center in any way in 2017!
