By Preservation Chairman, John Weiss
Preservation takes many forms. It can be buildings, roads, signs, structures and objects. Preservation can also be stories and remembrances of people, places and things. Preservation is the heartbeat and soul of our Mother Road, Route 66.
This year the Preservation Committee is doing something that has never been done before and will never do again.
First, some information.This is the 25th Anniversary of the Route 66 Association of Illinois. As a result I wanted to do something pertaining to Preservation that would also commemorate this extraordinary accomplishment.
