Dixon comes alive like Brigadoon

DIXON —Hasn’t the weather taken such a change? I am enjoying the fresh produce available from local markets, and visiting with neighbors. I’m hoping to beat the bugs to my blackberries, as the crop looks great. I’ll be looking for canning peaches, as I managed to stretch last year’s supply to last until this week. I’m so grateful my mother is a canner and still available to help me.

As of this writing, Dixon Melon Day will be held tomorrow. Like the fabled Brigadoon, which appeared once every hundred years, our little town will come alive with a parade, vendors, races, a community dinner, and other activities, including meeting people you may meet only see once a year. I look forward to greeting familiar faces as they come through the line for dinner at the center. 

Come join us for dinner every Monday at 6 p.m. and lunch on Thursday at noon. 

Menu for August:

Thursday, Aug. 30: King Ranch chicken

Our postmaster requests that, whoever removed the hose and sprinkler, please return it; no questions will be asked.  Thank you to Karen Herd for donating the lovely pansies in front of the post office. They have lasted throughout the hot summer.

Remember the last of this year’s fairs, the Sanders County Fair, is happening this weekend in Plains.
