News From Along Route 66, April 2017: Route 66 Bills in Congress

APRIL 11--  There is a fundraiser going on to build a huge Route 66 map to be made entirely of New Mexico license plates to be located near Edgewood, New Mexico.  They have raised $5,500 so far and the map will be 40 feet long and 12 feet high.  That'sa Big Map.

APRIL 15--  There are Route 66 bills in Congress.  One is to name the Mother Road as a National Historic Trail and the other is to set up a Route 66 100th Anniversary Commission.  That anniversary is coming up sooner than you'd think.

APRIL 16--  The Old Station in Williamsville, Illinois, has a new owner.  We sure enjoyed stopping there back when it was open with all those eccentric items and those neat car models.
