Photo Recap: Our Annual Association Picnic, 2014

Our annual Association picnic was held, once again at beautiful Sugar Grove Nature Center in Funk's Grove, Illinois on Sunday, August 17. It was a terrific day in the fresh air and sunshine where roadies satisfied their appetite for delicious picnic fare and the company of friendly folks.

Picnic attendee, Elaine Stonich, was kind enough to share her delicious photos of the picnic with us and we in turn, share them with you. Bon appétit!

Elaine says, "This is Bart and Denise and their two nephews. They brought us, at the picnic, Ted Drews ice cream for a treat!!! Their honeymoon was a month-long trip on Route 66 to California."


Speaking of Funks Grove, friend of Route 66, Joe Kubal, a local historian and author has made us aware of this recent post on his blog, The Curious Traveler's Guide to Route 66 in Metro Chicago about Funks Grove.
