To help restore a vintage Route 66 neon sign, the Oklahoma Route 66 Association is hosting a poker run on Saturday, Sept. 15.
Money raised during the poker run will go toward restoring the Rio Siesta Motel sign, which stood on Route 66 on the east edge of Clinton until a windstorm blew it down. Once refurbished, the sign will be donated to the Oklahoma Route 66 Museum in Clinton. Here’s what the sign looked like when it was still standing.
Registration on the day of the poker run is from 8:30 to 9 a.m. Passports must be turned in at POPS by 2 p.m. that day.
Entry fee is $20 a person or $35 per couple, with additional passports costing $15 apiece.
