I grew up in a town of 4,200 people. I fully admit to having a small-town bias. And I love Dixon and the small communities in KSB’s service area.
As a kid, I knew I appreciated a neighbor giving me a ride home when I crashed my bike on the other side of town. As a teenager, I was well aware that the threat from a police officer to tell my dad was way scarier than the threat of a ticket.
I love the Petunia Festival, Autumn On Parade, Town & Country Days, Depot Days, as well as all the other days that give us an excuse to celebrate where we live.
I love the fact that I can drive in Lee and Ogle County for months without ever hearing a horn honked in anger.
I love the excitement generated by a great high school sports team. There is nothing on the planet like Friday Night Lights at a small town high school field.
And I love the fact that KSB is not THE hospital… It’s OUR hospital. Your team at KSB is fighting every day to earn that trust.
