The Atlanta Betterment Fund Board of Directors will select the top ten entries and then motorists will vote May 1 to Aug. 31 to select a top five. You can vote at select Route 66 attractions in town or at the town's website, www.atlantaillinois.org.
The Top Five vote-getters will be displayed permanently at the Route 66 Park..
If you haven't submitted your $25 entry fee and application yet, it is too late as that was up until February 1st.
The top five will also be shown at the International Route 66 Festival in Springfield, Illinois, September 27-29th this year.
It is too bad noted Route 66 artist Bob Waldemire is no longer with us. I'd sure like to see his entry. Plus, you have to wonder if the late Ernie Edwards might have pig-hipped his way in as well.
