News From Along Route 66-- August 2015

AUGUST 10--  The Tee Pee Drive In, long closed, goes up for sale again.  The owners want $275,000 for it.

AUGUST 14--  The Lebanon, Missouri, Park Board has approved funds for the new Route 66 park.  They have allocated approximately $400,000 for it.  It will be located in Boswell park and will consist of kiosks, a Route 66 walking trail and a reproduction of the famous fountain that once was at Dream Village.  There will also be three murals.

Just one more reason to go to Lebanon.  I always wanted to see the Dream Village fountain.  I wonder how much Ramona had to do with this?

A SCOTTISH ROUTE 66?--  The UK Guardian reports about a new road in Scotland called the North Coast 500 which is a 500-mile driving route skirting the north coast from Inverness to the Kyle of Lochalsh on the west coast.  They hope it becomes Scotland's Route 66.  We can never have too much Route 66, even if it is in another country.
