Dorseyville Alliance Church, 3703 Saxonburg Blvd., will host its second annual free Family Fun Day on Oct. 6. Last year’s event featured a petting zoo.

Dorseyville Alliance Church in Indiana Township will transform its campus into a fall festival on Oct. 6 with music, pumpkins and a chili cook-off.

The church at 3703 Saxonburg Blvd. will host its second annual free Fall Family Fun Day, a community event for all ages, from noon to 3 p.m. in the church parking lot and hospitality room.

“We are looking to build upon last year’s success by providing a safe, fun-filled environment for people from our community to gather and enjoy being together,” the Rev. Mark Conklin said. “We want people to know that we love our community and are here for them.”

This year’s event will feature live music, free hot dogs and desserts, a chili cook-off, games, pumpkin painting, cornhole challenge, baskets and other giveaways.

Dorseyville Alliance Church has been serving at its present location since 1960. Church outreaches include supporting food banks, providing money and volunteers for a homeless ministry, making lap robes for area nursing homes and offering childcare to refugees from Syria and Burma.

“We are looking forward to gathering with friends and families of our community to create many fun memories this fall season,” said Marla Nestel, Fun Day coordinator.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
