Much to Be Thankful For
We hope your Thanksgiving Day was stupendous and you're are now not caught in any major snowstorms. Here in Dixon, it is brrr cold and cloudy, but no precipitation.
As you go about your “Black Friday” and your “Cyber Monday,” remember that not only is “Small Business Saturday” sandwiched in between, but that Downtown Dixon remains a great place to be this and every weekend.
Tomorrow night, don’t miss Tracy Fleck & Second Breakfast with Jack Kelly, playing Americana music and bluegrass, beginning 7pm until closing (9pm). Join us for Sauk Valley’s best pass-the-hat live entertainment in a coffeehouse setting.
Don’t forget that NEXT WEEKEND is Downtown Dixon’s Christmas Walk, with great goings-on on both Friday night and all-day Saturday (including concert at Dixon Theatre). For more information, go to Dixon Main Street's website (http://www.dixonil.com/mainstreet/) .
AND there’s December’s Second Saturday on 11 December. There are sure to be lots of venues hosting great art.
We are still waiting on the tree from Distinctive Gardens, but Brenda has names & ages of deserving but less privileged boys & girls. Come in and help us through our Books for Babes program to give a gift that keeps giving. We will take a portion of proceeds from all items bought through Books for Babes to buy mittens/gloves, hats and scarves for the children.
And for you and yours, we have so many great titles for giving and for getting you into the holiday mood, from Cookie Swap to Christmas in Illinois.
Hanukkah is but 5 days away and Christmas and Kwanzaa are right behind!
See you soon!
