JULY 11-- Skippy's Route 66 Restaurant in Leasburg, Missouri, reopens after a fire. We met a lot of Missouri Route 66 Association folks there one time. Glad to have it back.
JULY 13-- Plan would demolish Oklahoma City's Classen Circle so that a Braum's Ice Cream and Dairy Store can be built there. I don't remember seeing it, but a picture accompanying the article makes it look like a neat place. Too bad.
JULY 15-- Sprague's Super Service station in Normal, Illinois, to reopen in August. It was built in 1931 and is owned by the city.
I am so glad that Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, has finally figured out they need to push their Route 66 heritage. Money to be made, you know.
