— The grand marshals for Elk City Days have been announced. The community will honor Jeff and Nita Maxwell. Congratulations!

There will be the traditional and fun, at least for the kids, activities: the famous ping pong ball drop and sawdust dig for kids at the VFW. Go get ‘em kids!

Now for some Dixie News: The 106th annual Dixie Days celebration will be Aug. 5 and 6. Saturday morning at 9 a.m. is the baked food sale on the porch of the Community Center. Fish and chips, hamburgers and hot dogs will be served at 11 a.m. The photo contest is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The horseshoe contest starts at 10 a.m., with the kids’ games starting at 11 a.m., the Ducky Derby at 11 a.m., the Tug of War will be at 1:30 p.m., and the baseball game at 2 p.m. Bingo will be in the Community Center starting at 2 p.m. Whew! Lots to do.

Vendor booths will be open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with the silent auction from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. There will be a street dance at the Park from 5 to 9 p.m., with the band American Bonfire. They will have nachos and hot dogs to satisfy your appetite during the dance.

Sunday morning starting at 9 a.m. is the annual breakfast ($5 for adults, $3 for 5-12 years old, younger than 5 are free). The raffle drawing for the chain saw and homemade quilt will take place at 11 a.m. Be sure to get your tickets.
