Business Buzz: Dawson's Gets an Indoor Facelift

Spring Break and Easter Give Reason to Celebrate

Dawson’s Re-Opens Cafe

The new ownership of has brought a whole new look that appears more contemporary and spacious. Claire Fazzare and Kendra Lindstrom teamed up their talents and restaurant /bar experience from the Plainfield Station (on the way to Woodland) that should be an addition to the downtown core. Claire is the former owner of the Plainfield Station and Kendra was her bartender for nearly eight years.

They took down the upper half of the old hardware wall leaving only the lower half to create a divide between the café portion and the bar patrons. They created a new 3-fold menu full of delicious breakfast and lunch options which may be good timing on their part since just announced that they will no longer serve breakfast Monday through Thursday. Be sure to check out the new place soon.

Spring Break Means No School

Our local students will be out of school the week of April 2 – 6 for spring break. You might want to slow down and watch more carefully for children about town. Speaking of students, 20 select members of the Dixon Rugby Club left on Friday for Britain.

Easter Sunrise Service in Hall Park

One of my favorite things to do for Easter is to attend Service sponsored by the Dixon Ministerial Association and put on by the members of several Dixon churches. This year it is on Sunday, April 8.

It helps that I am an early rise as the service starts at 6:30 am in the amphitheater located behind at 600 East A Street.

There is always a great sermon, beautiful music, and—if the weather is cooperating—a beautiful sun rising over the tree tops of the park. There is also lots of Dixonites wearing blankets and slippers.

Time for Dixon May Fair Parade Entries

With the theme, “This is our country,” the 137th annual May Fair Parade information is officially being distributed and entries are being sought. The parade takes a huge amount of effort and kudos are deserving our

Carol Pruett is working extra diligently for sponsors this year since so city funds have been cut from loss of Redevelopment Agency event monies.  So far, two major sponsors have emerged: Altec Industries and P.G. & E. A very big thank you to them from all of us in Dixon for that sponsorship as the parade is one of those special traditions that make Dixon the hometown we love.

Vacation Bible School Set

 If you have elementary age children and enjoy the many Vacation Bible Schools offered at various churches in Dixon, you might want to mark your calendar for the dates set by the . They are planning to take the children on an ocean voyage June 11 – 14 with the theme, ‘Operation Overboard: Dare to Go Deep with God!’

I was told that because of postive feedback from customers Bud's decided to keep serving breakfast Monday - Friday along with usual brunch on the weekends.

Yes, that is true, Scott and so now we have several places in downtown Dixon that offer breakfast. I think that might be Dixon's favorite time to go out for a meal because all of the places seem to be full in the morning hours, too!
