ROUTE 66 INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

Okay, there may a few tweaks and adjustments in the days to come but as of last evening, this is the schedule of events for the Route 66 International Festival. At the bottom is the current schedule for presentations during the Route 66 Crossroads of the Past and Future conference at the festival.
In my humble opinion the conference represents an unprecedented opportunity to share information, and to build cooperative partnerships. I hope it is not used as a forum for casting blame or to foster divisions.
