2014 CALENDAR SPONSORS NEEDED

The theme for the calendar is “Things That Are Not Here Anymore.” Each month will feature a photo of something from the coverage area of the Society that is no longer in existence.
Contact the DuBois Area Historical Society at 814-371-9006 or by email email@example.com for additional information or to request a sponsorship. Businesses and individuals are both welcome to sponsor.
DONATIONS REQUESTED FOR MUSEUM IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
In 2012, a new awning and sign were installed on the exterior of the DuBois Area Historical Society’s museum. For 2013 the improvement projects will be indoors with new carpeting planned for the front three rooms of the E. D. Reitz Museum and a new drop ceiling for one of the display rooms in the Nye Annex. It is estimated that these improvements will cost approximately $4,000.
Donations are being accepted to assist in the completion of these projects. As a 501(c)3 organization, the DuBois Area Historical Society can accept tax deductible donations. Donations of any amount are being accepted for this project. Find a form to submit along with the donation here
