Dixon American Post 208 Commander, Norm Shontz is seen with the "Honey Bees" just prior to their singing performance last Saturday night at the Stand Down dinner fund raiser. The Vacaville teenage singing group was hired to entertain the 120 folks eating dinner.

The benefit, after expenses, raised about $3,000 for the Dixon Stand Down which will be held October 15-17 the at the Dixon May Fair Grounds. Anyone interested in volunteering for the two-day affair to help veterans in need and their families, or to make donations, can contact Commander Shontz at 678-6308
