DuBois, PA – Last night in the DuBois City Park, it wasn’t just a night of music and free food, but it was also a special night to honor a man who had started the music nights nearly four decades ago.

Jack Averill, now in his 80s, had started bringing in the bands more than 35 years ago.

It started on Long Avenue and the location changed throughout the years.

A plaque honoring Jack Averill will be placed in the DuBois City Hall.

Listen to the interview with Jack Averill and his wife, Polly.

A special preparation at the City of DuBois Night for Jack Averill, who has been in charge of coordinating the music in the park and this night’s celebration for over 35 years! Thanks for your service and dedication to the community, Jack!
