Along 66, August 2018: Illinois Governor Brauner a Big 66 Fan
These stories are taken from the Route 66 News site on the internet. I only take the stories of most interest to me and there are a lot of others, so if you want to know anything about what is going on along our favorite road, this is your go-to place.
AUGUST 29 Illinois Bruce Rauner led a parade of hundreds of motorcycles to four Route 66 sites to celebrate Illinois' Bicentennial.
** Launching Pad Drive-In in Wilmington
** Illinois Route 66 Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac
** Kelly's On 66 Restaurant in Lexington
** The Mill in Lincoln
They started in Shorewood (near Joliet) and ended at the Governor's Mansion in Springfield where they had a barbecue.
It benefited the Chicago Honor Flight Association.
I do not always agree with the governor (but sure back him in the Madigan Wars), but it is hard to not like a governor who loves his motorcycle and Route 66.
