DIXON – Neighbors don’t really know each other like they used to. Here’s an opportunity to fix that.

Greater Life Church, 1403 Hemlock Ave., and some of its neighbors and other sponsors are putting on a free Summer Fun Fest from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.

There will be food, door prizes, bounce houses, an obstacle course, miniature golf, bean bag toss, football throw, face painting and other activities at this first-time event, where families are invited to meet other families and share a fun afternoon.

Those who plan to attend can text their name and email address to 815-627-0222 by Friday to register for double the prize tickets for the children.

Call that same number for more information.
