Here's... August!

Cannot believe that August has come!

You can still catch the first production of Dixon's new theater group The Next Picture Show's Performing Arts School which performs Little Shop of Horrors this weekend (31Jul - 2Aug) at the Dixon High School Auditorium. Larry & I hope to catch the Sunday matinee tomorrow at 2pm.

August heralds the beginning of a new Melissa & Doug special -- buy two packs of art supplies and get a third one free!

Also coming up is the Heritage Crossing Riverfront Plaza (also known as the Dixon Riverfront) Dedication on Friday, 14 Aug. What a gala event-- eleven straight hours of a great time, with music starting with Dixon's Community Band and ending with Shades of Blue and the Late Night Blues Brothers Revue. The riverfront is looking great, a far cry from when Larry first introduced me to Dixon over 20 years ago, where most of this prime space was occupied by a municipal parking lot that had so few casual takers that there were posts with signs reserving spaces for private individuals who leased by the month or year or something like that. I was appalled. It's been a long time coming after the concerted efforts of many good citizens. Yay, Dixon!
