News From Along Route 66, April 2016: Munger-Moss 70th Birthday

APRIL 19--  The Munger-Moss Motel in Lebanon, Missouri, will mark its 70th birthday Saturday, April 23.  It also marks the 45th year Bob and Ramona Lehman have owned it.

The celebration will go from 5 to 10 p.m..  Earlier in the day, about 13 miles to the east, there will be a rally at the closed Gasconade bridge, built in 1924, but now being threatened with being torn down.

We were there for both activities.

APRIL 20--  The cars on the Route station in Galena, Kansas has been put up for sale, but will remain open for a few more weeks.

Here's hoping somebody buys it who will keep it going.  It is a neat place, and, of course, the original "Tow Mater."

APRIL 24--  Hundreds show up for the Gasconade Bridge Rally in Hazelgreen, Missouri.  We were among those folks.
