For over a decade, a quilt drawing has been a significant piece of the annual DuBois Center Fall Festival. In recent years, we have been blessed to have two or more art quality quilts donated to the drawing each year, which together have raised between $1,500 and $2,500 annually.
The quilts are typically donated by local church quilting groups and other friends of DuBois Center – would you or your quilting group be interested in donating a quilt for the 2019 Fall Festival? Queen size quilts seem to be the most popular, and those with designs appealing to a wide audience and made with love and prayers are perfect.
Ideally, the quilts begin traveling to local churches in August, so a July completion date works well. Please contact the DuBois Center office at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202 for more information. We’d love to talk to you about the possibilities.
Join Region 2 TONIGHT (Saturday, February 9) at St. Paul UCC in Columbia for BUNCO Night. The event supports DuBois Center and Kindercottage.
Bunco is an exciting dice game that is easy to learn. Children as young as 10 or 11 can be successful and have fun, so make sure to bring the whole family! Doors open at 6:30 pm and play begins at 7 pm. Cost to play is just $10 per person and a silent auction and 50/50 raffle will also be available. All proceeds benefit DuBois Center and our mission.
This year, Bunco Night is again being paired with an effort to “Fill the Cupboard” at Kindercottage. By February, the major food collection holidays are a distant memory and cupboards need restocking – so make sure to bring non-perishable food items to donate to the cause.
Help spread the word – invite everyone you know! Check out this flyer for more details.
The ISC Outdoor Ministries Team (OMT) announces the 42nd annual Fall Festival at DuBois Center on Sunday, October 7th from 11:00 am to 5:00 pm. Many of the traditional favorites for this autumn fundraiser will continue to be featured, if enough supervisors and volunteers come forward. We hope many will be able to participate as a volunteer, as a donor of food, items, or money, as a crafter, a musician, and/or a buyer.
Your church will receive more information this summer about the Fall Festival and updates will be printed periodically in the Weekly Connection. For more information, please contact Norma Borgmann (OMT Chairperson) at 618-533-1658 (H) or 618-292-4617 (C) or email@example.com.
