Two associations in Amarillo, Texas, and the state’s Route 66 association are joining forces to raise funds to paint a Route 66 shield on the city’s water tower.
Mix 94.1 radio in Amarillo reports the Historic 6th Street on Route 66 Association, Texas Old Route 66 Association and the San Jacinto Neighborhood Association must raise $18,000 by Sept. 30 to add the shield to the water tower.
The gargantuan water tower stands on 6th Street (aka Route 66) and Independence Street on the city’s west side.
Any donation will be accepted, but pledges of $66 or more will earn a certificate of participation. One can donate through PayPal at email@example.com.
Donations for the cause also will be accepted at Texas Ivy Antiques at 3511 SW 6th Ave in Amarillo. The phone number there is (806) 373-1427.
