The Route 66 Associations of Illinois & Missouri, and the Friends of the Mother Road, are proud to announce that the official re-lighting date has been set for Saturday, October 22, 2011, at approximately 6:30 PM, depending on the timing of dusk that evening. Larry Wofford, owner of the Luna Café, is anxiously awaiting this exciting day when his historic Route 66 beacon will again shine like it did during the hey-day of the Mother Road.
He is delighted to welcome all Route 66 roadies to join in the fun and celebrate this exciting event with him. This would not only be a great celebration of the sign but a great way to join fellow road friends …… and make new ones — and it will also constitute a big thank you to Larry for his contribution to the preservation of the Mother Road with the rebirth of this classic sign.
Refreshments will be served, and it is anticipated that a representative from the Illinois State Historic Preservation Agency will be there for this special event, as well local media and community leaders.
Don’t miss the party at the Luna Cafe in Mitchell, Illinois on October 22nd!
