[October 11, 2017]  LINCOLN - The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has once again teamed up with the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County to host the 11th Annual Car Cruise-In at The Mill. The event will take place Saturday, October 14th, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at The Mill, 738 S. Washington St. in Lincoln.

All are welcome to attend and/or to register their car in the show. Registration is $5, which will go towards ongoing annual expenses, such as insurance and utilities, and landscaping needs at The Mill.

All members of the Railsplitter Antique Auto Club, other car clubs, and the public are invited to this fun-filled family event. In keeping with the decades-old tradition of music at The Mill, there will be live music beginning at 11am, from Ryan Parcelle of Lincoln and Stan, Jeff & Lynn from Jacksonville. There will also be a 50/50 drawing and hot pizza served at the event.

“This will be the first year that the Mill will be open as a museum during this event,” said Geoff Ladd, of the Route 66 Heritage Foundation of Logan County. "The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has always been fantastic and totally makes this event possible, and has been doing so for the entire eleven years we have been restoring The Mill.”

“I also want to thank our musicians performing this year and from past years at Mill fund-raising events. Ryan Parcelle is returning after his excellent debut performance at the motorcycle show in September, and Stan Robinson & Lynn Ruby (with Jeff Newman) are returning to the Mill after their awesome performance at the 2016 motorcycle show." Parcelle is working on a studio recording of his original music, and Stan & Lynn are long-time members of the band Tapestry from Jacksonville.

The Railsplitter Antique Auto Club has been an active organization in downtown Lincoln and hosts cruise-ins throughout the spring, summer and fall. They're always looking for new members, so come out to the Mill and join up. This club brings a fantastic array of antique autos for display.
