Why Join the Route 66 Association of Illinois?
Association member Doug Hitchings answers:
“Supporting the things that matter is a simple answer. A children’s hospital during the holidays, a GoFundMe for Kentucky tornado victims and a group of dedicated preservationists. If one can…one should.”
“And furthermore when you’re on our IL stretch of the Mother Road, everyone’s smiling and happy. The world needs more of that right now.”
