People watch as bulbs are lit at the POW-MIA Christmas tree during the lighting ceremony at Dixon's Veterans Memorial Park in 2017.

DIXON – The annual POW-MIA Christmas Tree Lighting will begin at 6 p.m. today at Veterans Memorial Park, 668 Veterans Parkway.

The ceremony memorializes service members who are prisoners of war or missing in action and won’t be home for Christmas.

VFW Post 540, Veterans Memorial Park and American Legion Post 12 are taking over the tree lighting from the now-defunct Vietnow, which had done it for more than 30 years.

Call 815-288-5165 for more information.
