News From Along Route 66, October 2016: Miles of Possibility Conference Conference Speakers Announced

SEPTEMBER 19--  This is a time sensitive report, so I moved it up.  Normally I run the News from Along Route 66 a month behind time.

The speaker lineup for the Miles of Possibility Conference to be held at the McLean County Museum/ Cruisin' With Lincoln building in downtown Bloomington, Illinois, has been announced.

And it is a big and good one.  Lots of people, lots of experts.

I started to write them down, but it would take too long so stopped after the first several of them:

Vory Jobe, Illinois Office of Tourism
Ellie Alexander, Pontiac Director of Tourism
Joel Blake, expert on the Muffler Men
Paul Butterfield.

You can see the whole list at this date in the Route 66 News web site.

The conference will be held Thursday October 20 to Sunday, October 23.

I's ure like to be there, but we already have plans for NIU's Homecoming that weekend.

It Is So Good To see Bloomington-Normal Finally Doing Something About Their Route 66 Heritage.  --RoadDog
