Honoring Sue Reeble

On Saturday, August 6, a Celebration of Life was held at DuBois Center for Sue (Larry) Reeble, who was a long-time volunteer with the horse program there. Sue and Larry spent much time sharing their love of the horses and DuBois Center, so it was the perfect place to honor her life and the time she donated to DuBois Center. In lieu of flowers, Sue requested that donations be given to DuBois Center by check to Illinois South Conference, 1312 Broadway, Highland, IL 62249 or online. Please note that the donation is in memory of Sue Reeble.

Volunteers like Sue and Larry Reeble have made DuBois Center a place to find the love of God through nature.

Giving Thanks!

This week we give thanks for program volunteers! They touch the lives of every summer camper and retreat participant at DuBois Center! They share their special gifts and talents in the cabins and the health center, at the barn and during worship. Serving as chaplains, camp counselors, nurses, activity specialists and on the equestrian team, they tend to our minds, bodies and spirits. They teach us about bees, horses, fishing, science and so much more, as they share their passion for the gospel, Christian community and all of God’s creation. In the words of Mother Teresa, “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.”

THANKS to all those whose ripples can be felt at DuBois Center and beyond. Featured here are (top l to r) Donna Asbridge – volunteer nurse and first aid instructor, Craig & Rev. Katie Jo Bielke – volunteer camp chaplains, (center) Larry Reeble, long time horse volunteer and (bottom center) Luke Volmert – former camper and current volunteer camp counselor.
