Join Region 2 for a night of winter blues-busting fun at St. Paul UCC in Columbia on Saturday, February 9. Play BUNCO and support DuBois Center and Kindercottage – all at the same time!
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; 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.
We’ve got hay, but we need 50 more sturdy wooden pallets. It’s all about healthy horses and saving dollars. Storing hay off the ground keeps it out of the mud. Drier bales mean less mold growth. Moldy hay is not healthy for horses. In addition, mold contributes to large amounts of waste. Keeping the hay drier also helps to retain its nutritional content throughout the year. If you have or can find any new or gently used sturdy pallets, contact Scott Kuether at firstname.lastname@example.org. THANKS!
DuBois Center’s annual Fall Festival is powered by the talent, sweat, love and cheer of scores of volunteers. Hopefully you already plan to attend and enjoy some good food, great music and creative crafts, but have you considered spending a few hours volunteering? There are lots of ways to serve – assist with parking or greet visitors, drive a boat or a tractor, take tickets or take money, catch pontoon boats or walk horses at the arena, 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! For more information, contact DuBois Center at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202.
By now, via snail mail, every ISC church should have received a packet of pertinent information about Fall Festival. We ask that each church use a variety of ways to promote DuBois Center’s annual fund-raising event. Below are links to electronic versions of promotional pieces for newsletters, website, bulletins, etc. Feel free to click on the links below to use them in promoting Fall Festival.

Beautiful quilts are an integral part of DuBois Center’s annual Fall Festival. Each year, lovingly crafted treasures are donated for the quilt drawing. Our first quilt of the season has been donated and it’s beautiful! This charming star pattern quilt is twin-sized (66″ x 86″), hand-pieced and quilted. It was created and donated by Sarah Moore, a member at Bethel UCC in Cahokia. This is Sarah’s second Fall Festival quilt.
If you or your group would like to donate a quilt for this year’s drawing, contact Shirley at dcinfo@DuBoisCenter.org or 618-787-2202. Ideally, the second quilt would be queen-sized. Thanks for your support!
