Informational meeting and presentation at Route 66 State Park Oct. 19

Jefferson City, Mo. - The public is invited to bring their ideas to an informational meeting at Route 66 State Park on Sunday, Oct. 19. In conjunction with the meeting, visitors are invited to attend “Route 66 – Crossroads of the Past and Future,” a presentation by author Jim Hinckley. Hinckley has written many books on Route 66, several of which are available at the park gift shop. A book signing of his most recent book, Travel Route 66, will follow the presentation.

The meeting will be held from noon to 2 p.m. at the park’s visitor center, with the special Route 66 presentation beginning at 1 p.m. During the informational meeting, park representatives will provide information on future plans for the facility and answer questions. Visitors are invited to share feedback and suggestions about park services and operations. This informational meeting is part of an ongoing effort by Missouri State Parks to ensure citizens have the opportunity to provide input regarding the facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites.

Route 66 State Park is located two miles east of Eureka off of Interstate 44 in St. Louis County. Individuals requiring special services or accommodations to attend the meeting can make arrangements by calling the park directly at 636-938-7198.
