Engraved paver program now taking orders

The Dixon Heritage Crossing Riverfront, between the Peoria and Galena avenue Rock River bridges in Dixon, is ready for a very busy spring, summer and fall with several program events.

We have a good mix of public and private events scheduled. One that everyone is looking forward to is this 50th-year Petunia Festival celebration, with the Heritage Crossing being the center stage for many of the activities.

The riverfront commission has set May 16 as a cutoff date for taking engraved paver orders. Orders for an engraved paver for yourself, a loved one, group, family member, or business or organization will be taken anytime between now and May 16.

Order forms may be obtained from Dixon City Hall or the Dixon Main Street office. You may also get a form from the website www.discoverdixon.org/riverfront.

This will allow time for all the engraving to take place before the Dixon Petunia Festival. The program allows you, the public, to make a donation and have the opportunity to leave a legacy by having a paver engraved with your name, special tribute for loved ones, special remembrances, and/or favorite sayings.

The Dixon Riverfront Commission is qualified as a Section 501(c)(3) organization under the Internal Revenue Code. Your donation is tax deductible.

Note to readers: Larry E. Reed is the chairman of the Dixon Riverfront Commission.
