Don’t forget – BUNCO Night is THIS Saturday!

Bunco

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.

You’re Invited to Fall Festival 2018!

Fall Fest 2018
Now that the 2018 summer camp season has concluded, we will soon be enjoying the cooler weather of autumn and the Fall Festival at DuBois Center.
This 42nd annual fall fundraiser will be held on Sunday, October 7 from 11 am to 5 pm. A list of chairs to supervise specific attraction areas and their contact numbers will be coming in an upcoming article. If you able to volunteer in a certain area (inside or outside) and know that already, please contact Norma Borgmann at 618-533-1658 or DuBois Center at 618-787-2202.
We are still looking for nice items to fill the tables of the “Upscale Resale Shoppe” and Silent Auction. Maybe you have been doing some summer housekeeping, downsizing, or just wanting to find a new owner(s) of new and/or almost new items. Please consider donating your item(s) for the “Upscale Resale Shoppe” which is featured in Oak Lodge. We are seeking purses, jewelry, seasonal decor, unique collectibles, toys, outdoor things, etc. We will put price tags on the entries if you do not want to do it. Please – NO clothing or sets of china ware. Be reminded that buyers need to carry their purchases to their vehicles. For more details about pick-up arrangements from your home, please contact Norma before September 30.
We will have a Silent Auction in the fireside area of Oak Lodge as well. We are asking for theme baskets, unique items, decor, etc. for attendees to submit bids on the accompanying sheets.
In addition, there will be three drawings for three unique, creative, and hand-made quilts that have been donated to DuBois Center for fundraising. We are most grateful for these donors’ generosity of time, talents, and passion for DuBois Center.
A packet of Fall Festival flyers and sheets of quilt tickets is being sent to each ISC church via snail mail in the next week. Please feel free to duplicate any of those sheets. They will also be included in future Weekly Connection edition(s). We ask that you assist in promoting the Fall Festival. Thank you in advance.
If you have any questions about the Fall Festival, please free feel to contact DuBois Center or nborgmann1658@charter.net. Hope to see many of you at DuBois Center on 10/7/18 as a visitor or volunteer.
Thank you!
