The financial support you give to an individual hose company during DuBois Community Days goes is extremely important. The money raised during this incredible community event ensures that DuBois and the communities served are safe and protected by providing the departments and volunteers the needed equipment, training and resources. We realize in today’s economy that everyone is watching their money, but your donation, no matter what amount, makes the difference needed to continue our 100% volunteer fire department.
History of DuBois Community Days
This is the 26th year for Community Days! Our goal was to great a Community event that everyone could get behind and participate in. Only non-profit groups can make money from the event. Individual DuBois Volunteer Fire Department hose companies, including other non-profits, can sell food and other items to raise funds. Every group, both non-profit or for-profit companies involved in the event, that participates does something to contribute back to the event in some sort of non-monetary way.
Fun history fact: The parade has been around a lot longer than Community Days. Community Days actually grew from events surrounding the parade, and has always been in the City Park. The first year only had two food booths and generators for electric. Throughout the strong support from the DuBois area communities, major upgrades were completed throughout the years including the installation of a vast electrical supply system, the Edward V. Cherry Amphitheatre, and a park wide PA announcement system.
For more than 125 years, the DuBois Volunteer Fire Department has honorably served the City of DuBois, Pennsylvania. The Department is one of only two volunteer Fire Departments in the nation with this rating and, to this day, the only Fire Department — career or volunteer – holding a PPC rating of one in the State of Pennsylvania.
