Museum Project Clean Up Day

150 S. Kankakee St., Godley, IL
The location in Godley is on Rt. 66 next to the Village Hall at the road that leads into the K Mine Park where we have had several picnics.
We will begin with a short ceremony to honor those who died in the Diamond Mine Disaster. The first bodies were recovered 128 years ago to the day. Forty six men and boys remain entombed.
Some preparation work has already been accomplished. Remaining is exterior painting, washing and installing paneling. Some interior demolition and painting, window washing, carpentry and some major floor cleaning and lots more. Of course lunch will be furnished by the Association and local residents.
We welcome your Route 66 news, stories, photos and events for publication in our newsletter or on our web site!
