“I Spy” is on the Road Again

I Spy
I’ve got my tickets! Do you?! Each year, the Happy Quilters of St. John UCC, Mascoutah stitch and promote an amazing youth quilt to support DuBois Center. This year’s “I SPY” treasure is based on the popular books of picture riddles. It is 70 x 80 inches of fun created from 120 different fabrics!
Tickets are $1.00 each or 6 for $5.00. The church matches what the Happy Quilters raise, so each dollar you donate is two dollars for DuBois Center.
The traveling quilt still has a few stops to make before the grand display at the 40th Annual Quilt Show at St. John UCC on April 27. It you can’t catch it live, click here for tickets, then print and mail them to the church with a check payable to “Happy Quilters.”
Thank you in advance for your generosity!
Final tour stops:
   Sun, March 24 – St. Peter’s UCC, Okawville
   Sun, April 7 – Christ UCC, Dupo
   Sat, April 27 – 40th Annual Quilt Show at St. John UCC, Mascoutah

Calling all Quilters!

Quilt Image

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 Green DuBois on Feb. 16

Invasive plants

Join the team and make a difference! Removing invasive species, such as Japanese honeysuckle, is the priority for the day. Invasives are insidious – “choking” out native plants and affecting tree reproduction essential for healthy woodlands. This is a great opportunity to move those muscles, meet and work with others who care about the environment, rescue wildlife habitat, support native plants and help ensure the future of DuBois Center’s wonderful woodlands. No special skills are needed. Dress for the weather – layers recommended – and bring lopping shears if you have them. Minimum Age: 16, unless accompanied by a parent. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP by MONDAY, FEB 11.For more information or to sign up, contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
