Over the last couple of weeks a number of different small groups have been at DuBois Center for work days. Three hard workers from the Sullivan–Zbinden family spent part of their fall break from school lending a helping hand. Both Aralynn and Bailey were campers in 2019 and were planning to return in 2020, along with other family members. This year, they got their dose of DuBois in October instead of June or July. They hauled brush, painted and moved rocks for the pollinator gardens… and kept on smiling! They also took time to enjoy a picnic lunch and to visit the horses.
St. Paul UCC in Waterloo was back at camp for a second day this fall. This time, youth group members enjoyed trail rides in the morning, lunch in the back of a pick-up truck, and then an afternoon of work projects. This crew raked and raked and raked, then they moved 455 pieces of wood – first into the truck and then into the wood shed. A SPECIAL THANKS to these members of DuBois Center’s extended family! P.S. No, they did not ride on the back of the truck when moving the wood.
