September arrives in just 8 days. It’s a month known for cooling temperatures from the ’80s and ’90s at the beginning of the month to the ’70s and ’80s at month’s end. And in the past, there has even been scattered frost reported overnight toward the end of the month. It’s a month of community celebrations. Covid has prompted the cancellation of Cow Days in Dixon. However, Railroad Days is still planned in Crocker. The 49th annual event will take place September 4th from 8 a-m to 10 p-m in Crocker City Park. There will be a parade at 11 a-m, vendors, bounce houses, train rides, D-J, ATV Rodeo, the coronation of the Railroad Days Prince and Princess and Junior Miss Crocker and Miss Crocker, and auction, and contests as well. Contact Sarah Ransome at 573-855-1506. Saturday, September 11th, will be the Remembering 9/11 Patriots Day Festival from 7:30 am to 11:30 pm at the Pulaski County-Fort Wood Shrine Club in Buckhorn.
