It may not feel like the holidays today, but Downtown Dixon is already
ringing in the holiday cheer. The many stores have their holiday
decorations starting to go up, the riverfront put up some lights and
Hennepin Ave. got the star treatment thanks to several volunteers last
Friday and some generous businesses. Big thanks to Wendler Engineering,
Audio Video Connection, Wedding Whims and Bill and Dicks. And thanks to
Scott Brown, Dennis Turner, Nicole Bollman, and Mitch Tucker for helping
to put up the decorations.
And just one big note this week ...

Chamber of Commerce is Friday, Dec. 3 from 6-9 p.m. The Great Snowball
