Three named to Laclede County Route 66 Wall of Fame
LEBANON-LACLEDE COUNTY ROUTE 66 SOCIETY
An entrepreneur whose business grew from selling ice water to having a Route 66 town named after him, a family that owned three gas stations and a popular Conway restaurant famous for its “little round pies,” and a woman who owned five motels including Lebanon’s El Rancho and Holiday motels are the newest members of the Laclede County Route 66 Wall of Fame, the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society announced Wednesday.
J. Floyd Caffey, the Harris Family — S.W. “Sim” Harris, son Barney and Barney’s wife Marie — and Marie Williams will be inducted at the Route 66 Society’s annual membership meeting Saturday, Jan. 27, at the Cowan Civic Center in Lebanon. A social hour, starting at noon, will include a free chili and soup lunch. The program starts at 1 p.m. Everyone who supports the Route 66 Society’s mission “to educate, preserve, promote and develop Route 66 in Laclede County” is welcome to attend.
