Join Our Association - Get a Gift!

Due to its extreme popularity, our membership special has been extended through the summer! Read on for all the details about membership in our Association, membership options and your gift for joining.

Your membership dollars make our preservation efforts possible!

For as little as $20, you can become an Individual member of our Association.

Members receive our quarterly publication, The 66 News, for their reading enjoyment, a decal, laminated membership card and our undying thanks for helping us to further our Association's mission to preserve, promote, educate and enjoy Route 66 in Illinois.

There are lots of things you can do with $20 a year but can any of them go as far as we can stretch them to help preserve Route 66 treasures?
