ELK CITY — The Dixie Volunteer Fire Department will be sponsoring a day of activities to raise funds on Aug. 30. Sign up for the Fireman’s Fun Run from 9-11 a.m. at the fire hall.

There will be a lunch/dinner at the fire hall so be back between 3 and 6 p.m. to enjoy the meal being prepared by the Dixie ladies. Hot dogs, baked potato bar and corn on the cob, all for 5 bucks. What could be better after a fun ride in the forest? The fun run winner will be announced at 5:30 p.m. Next will be a new thing in Dixie… washer board tournament.

History: Did you know that in 1870, gold-quartz veins were found at the Buster property, but very little gold was mined until 1902. The Buster mine became the largest lode producer in the district and produced about $300,000 in gold between 1907 and 1909 (Lorain, 1938, p. 28). The Buster Mine and Mill site sit just past the Forest Service.
