Cleanup Day at Odell Standard Station

Date: 
Saturday, April 8, 2017 - 10:00am

This is our annual paint up, clean up, fix up day at the historic station. Over 30,000 people visit this site every year. If it wasn’t for the efforts to maintain our pride and joy attraction, it would surely deteriorate with this many tourists visiting such a small space. The camper, grounds and building inside and out need a thorough cleaning. Some painting and repairs will also be required. Lunch will be furnished by the Route 66 Association.

It is not necessary but it is helpful if I know how many will be attending. If you can, call and let me know if you are planning to attend. John Weiss – 815-458-6616

Clean Up Day at Route 66 Museum in Pontiac, IL

Date: 
Saturday, March 11, 2017 - 10:00am

The museum, the displays, the Waldmire Road Yacht and more need a sprucing up before tourist season. Over 30,000 people come to visit our displays every year causing some wear and tear. A good cleaning is necessary. Lunch will be provided by the Route 66 Association. It is a known fact that, “we work for food.”

It is not necessary but it is helpful if I know how many will be attending. If you can, call and let me know if you are planning to attend. John Weiss – 815-458-6616

We need to support our various attractions on Route 66! These sites provide memories that last a lifetime for our visitors from around the world. For us, it is the camaraderie of working and playing together that brings a sense of good will, well-being and pride to all of us.
