The Dixon Springs Preservation Association is once again hosting its annual Ice Cream Social. It will be held this coming Sunday afternoon, Aug. 25, from 2-4 p.m. The “all you can eat” event takes place in the small community’s restored old bank building.

The public is invited, so you don’t have to be a resident of the community to attend…and, the event is free!

The Association hosts this yearly social to encourage residents and visitors alike to come to Dixon Springs and enjoy its small town charm.

Guests will enjoy a variety of homemade ice cream flavors made by the association’s members and will be able to see some of the preservation work done by the group.

In addition to the town’s old People’s Bank building, the group has helped restore and save an old cottage, a stagecoach inn and the town’s country store.

Each year attendees take a straw poll to decide who has brought the best “homemade” flavor to the social, and residents of the community are encouraged to bring their own favorite recipe to compete. It will be a great way to wind down after the long hot days of summer!
