Patrick “Pat” McElroy was among our 2017 Hall of Fame inductees. Unfortunately, there was a mixup with his plaque, so it could not be presented at the same time as the other two honorees at our Hall of Fame banquet on June 10, 2017. We’re happy to report that the mistake has been remedied and the corrected plaque has been obtained.
On July 22, the plaque was officially presented to the family of Pat McElroy at our Hall of Fame and Museum in Pontiac, Illinois.
Congratulations, once again to the McElroy family; and thank you for your contributions to the character of Route 66 in Illinois.
