WE LOVE THE MAIN STREET OF AMERICA
The Route 66 Association of Missouri is a non-profit organization established to preserve, promote, and develop Historic 66 in the Show-Me State. It originated from the efforts of dedicated volunteers who in the fall of 1989 realized Historic 66 in Missouri deserved the recognition and preservation. The association became a reality in early 1990 when it began officially with more charter members than any other state Route 66 Association. Today, Association members reside in over 30 states plus internationally.
URGENT PLEA HELP US SAVE THE GASCONADE BRIDGE
This is called new member involvement. Recently I saw a post shared by Eric Dobbs and his wife Pam had done some cleanup around the Gasconade Bridge area. Two weekends were spent getting it to this point. See third picture for the welcome she now has for travelers doing this beautiful Ozark section of Route 66. Thanks so much for so your hard work! Eric and family are recent transplants from Mississippi to Lebanon Missouri.
UPDATES Missouri has approved the tag we have moved into the design phase with them. Once this is completed we are one step closer to having our own Route 66 Vanity Plate. Stay tuned for more updates. Make sure to sign up on the waiting list.
Copying other’s success is a good thing. Especially when you are on the same mission. Launched in late 2016, the Route 66 Association of Arizona created a license plate to raise funds for their Association. With its sleek, black, white, and gray palette, it was the 2016 winner of the Best New License Plate in the U.S. The Arizona Association receives approximately $170,000 net, annually from license plate proceeds.
The Missouri Route 66 Association will be applying for our very own personalized plate in 2021 and all proceeds will go to the preservation, promotion, and education of Route 66. The vanity license plate costs approximately $15.00 additional to a normal license fees.
St. Louis native and fellow roadie, Shellee Graham, is graciously providing her talents to help us create the beautiful design you see here. To make this license plate a reality we need at least 200 Missouri residents interesting in obtaining the plate to add their name to our sign-up list. This list is then presented to the state showing “good faith” that our organization will commit to the project.
Be the first person on your street with this great work of art on your ride! If you are interested in making history and want to be a part of this exciting opportunity, please sign up right now at our website!
Please note: Final design may be slightly different due to sizing constraints.
