The Route 66 Association of Missouri – Quarterly Meeting on Sat. January 8, 2011

If I have said it once – I have said it a hundred times – if you can get to one of these – do it!

The Missouri Association are some of the hardest working folks on the route and this is your opportunity to see them in action. They talk about past and future events, planning, restoration, and anything else involving Route 66 throughout Missouri.

One of my favorite times during the meetings is lunch time where you can sit around people who really know the route and have endless amounts of knowledge.

The meeting will take place:
Zeno’s Steak House in Rolla, MO.
Lunch will be served at 12:00 pm
with the general meeting following.
