JULY 13-- Chicago plans Route 66 birthday party for Saturday on Jackson Boulevard in Chicago. This is put on by the Illinois Department of Tourism. Hopefully they will; do it by the "Start of Route 66 sign." A Route 66 mural is planned for the site.
JULY 20-- Funks Grove Maple Sirip is featured on the Illinois-Made series on TV. This is put out by the Illinois Office of Tourism.
JULY 22-- Frog Rock, always a favorite "see" for me, was officially added to the federal geology site. It is located east of Waynesville, Missouri.
JULY 26-- Former Cafe on the Route is up for sale in Baxter Springs, Kansas. We ate there a long time ago and the food was some of the best I ever tasted.
