On behalf of the visually and hearing impaired, the Lions Clubs of Dixon wish to thank you, the citizens of Dixon and the surrounding area, for your generous support of our Candy Day.

The Lions of Illinois Foundation will receive a minimum of 60 percent of these funds for use in such activities as Camp Lions and other foundation projects. The remaining amount will be retained by the Dixon Lions clubs for use in local humanitarian services.

The following Dixon businesses also are thanked for underwriting the cost of candy and other supplies used in our successful Candy Day: the Telegraph, Supreme Cleaners, Ace Hardware, Edward Jones Investments (Chad Weigle, adviser), Books on First, Dr. Kurt Nelson (optometrist), Dixon Floral, and Mama Cimino’s Restaurant.

Thanks also to the U.S. Post Office, County Market, Walgreens Drug Store, Walmart, Shopko, Dixon Food Center, and Oliver’s for use of storefront space to accept donations.

Note to readers: Don Pauser is the treasurer, Jerry Pauser was the Candy Day chairman for the Noon Lions Club, and Al Moine was chairman for the Evening Lions Club.
