On behalf of the visually and hearing impaired, the Lions clubs of Dixon wish to thank the citizens of Dixon and the surrounding area for their generous support of our Candy Day.
The Lions of Illinois Foundation will receive a minimum of 60 percent of the money 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.
We would like to thank Community State Bank for underwriting the cost of the candy and other supplies used in our successful Candy Day.
Thanks also to Dixon Food Center, Dixon Post Office, Ace Hardware, Shopko, and Walmart for the use of their storefront space to accept donations.
Note to readers: Shari Dysart is chairwoman of Candy Day for the Lions clubs of Dixon.
