Jim Aughenbaugh wanted to say thank you to everyone to the committee who makes
community days possible. “Community Days
is always a successful event in the City of DuBois. My hat goes off to the group of people that
put this together because it’s a lot of hard work that usually starts right
after Community Days is done and they start preparing for the next year. They
do a great job and every year it gets bigger and better. Look for another successful
community days this year.”
