66 Heritage Foundation Volunteer Work Day at the Mill this Saturday
Are you good at working with your hands? How about yard work? Or
how about interested in helping to restore an historic Route 66 icon
of Logan County? If any of those apply to you, come on out to the
Mill at 738 S. Washington St., Lincoln, IL, to help us in the
restoration process of this site!
For the first time since the Mill came under the ownership of the
Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County, the public is being
invited to volunteer at the work site. The workday is scheduled for
this Saturday, August 30th from 9 AM until "?". There will be a
number of activities available, so there's something for everyone of
every skill level. A highlight of the work day will be the restoring
of the mill blades on the front of the building. Members of the
Route 66 Association of Illinois rebuilt the blades a couple months
Volunteers must be willing to sign a personal injury liability
waiver. In addition, volunteers will be required to wear closed toe
shoes and long pants. Please note that this is all volunteer work,
and payment will not be rendered for the services performed.
