-RETRO Events:

-Midway Trading Post Cleanup-

was fabulous!  A special thanks to Larry Failing of Northwest Masonry, Jace Alderson, and Jim Bouton
who put their talents together to fix the crumbling
wall on the front of Midway last Saturday!

Thanks to all of the volunteers, and thanks to

Domino’s Pizza, Windmill Water, The Town of Edgewood, Bill Gilmore, and all who helped to make the Midway Post…half way between Arizona and Texas on Route 66…a little better.

This is in preparation for Summer visitors and the

 Czech Film Crew coming Sunday, May 25th, 2014

-Whiting Bros sign refurbishment;
Exciting news for Whiting Bros! 

Zeon inspected the high sign at Whiting Bros. over the weekend and came to the conclusion that a catastrophe could occur if an attempt was made to remove it from the poles. 

 They are more comfortable sending a crew to Moriarty to do the work in place.  The sign will be strengthened and restored right before our eyes!

Zeon will schedule the work at their weekly meeting on

Friday and let us know by Tuesday of next week what will

happen and when.  Sal has given all of this his ok

 and is anxious to see work begin!

We are still planning to have our celebration when the

NM Rt. 66 Car Cruise comes through town in June,

 so get those t-shirts pressed and GET READY!!!!!!

We are looking for someone to do a documentary of the entire process.  Please contact; Debbie Pogue at manager@sunseton66.com
