Rescheduled Bags for the Brave Has New Openings

Due to being rained out on Labor Day weekend, Bags for the Brave has been rescheduled to Sunday, September 16th on the 100 block of W First Street in downtown Dixon.

Bags for the Brave raises money each year so that Lee County and surrounding area veterans can go on an Honor Flight. With the support of our corporate sponsors and the community over 300 area Veterans have traveled on an Honor Flight and there are 58 signed up for the next scheduled flight in 2019. Applications for Veterans and Guardians will be available at the event.

The Bags for the Brave is taking place during the Dixon Scarecrow Festival. The rescheduled date does conflict with many who planned on playing bags over Labor Day, so there are openings if you would like to join.

The cost for a Bags Team is $40. Plus, there are many prizes being awarded, a 50-50 drawing, and kids can play shoot the puck to try and win a new bike.

Registration starts at 11 am at the corner of First Street and Hennepin Avenue. The Veteran’s parade will begin at Noon on Hennepin Ave by the Library and go to First Street, followed by a short ceremony.
