John R. Jurgovan from St. Peters, Missouri recently joined our growing group
of members and supporters, and writes that he is interested in Route 66:
All of it!
Both Timothy J. Hurley, from Tinley Park, Illinois, as well as Tom Kotschi
from Cudahy, Wisconsin, found us on our new web site. Tom writes that he
is interested in the history and current conditions of the road today, and
adds, "Your web site is very good." Thanks, Tom! You give us an
opportunity to point out that the Albuquerque Journal recently named ours
as "Web Site of the Week."
Dean H. Lewis of Mendanales, New Mexico, writes that he was born the same
year that Route 66 came into being--1926. Congratulations! Dean has driven
the road several times from California to the Midwest.
Pleas M. Glenn of Albuquerque is interested in the road and historical buildings.
Dianne J. Wulff from Redington Shores, Florida writes that she is interested
in preserving the original road and the great small businesses along it.
Please note our new business members as well as those renewing in the ad
page. Also, for the first time this month, we are listing a business directory,
so that members can stop by and say hello to our business supporters along
Ron Edlund of Muskegon, Michigan renewed, and writes "I am happy and
proud to say that I am a continuous member of all EIGHT Route 66 Associations."
You deserve eight gold stars, Ronald!

a historical memorial monument and a Route 66 museum.

Van Nightingale, from Orange, California, is another renewing member. He
wrote that he and his wife finally were able to take their first Chicago-to-Santa
Monica trip last June, and the New Mexico stretch was the highlight of the
trip. Thanks, Van, we couldn't agree more!
