We have new signs.....
Working in the mist and sometimes rain, AMAX Sign Co. installed three of the four signs at the top of the derrick this past week. The rain delayed installation of the fourth sign because the ground is too soft for the heavy equipment. Installing the signs painted by artist, Kenneth Hollingshead, was not a small task, it has taken awhile to find a crane tall enough to reach the heights of the derrick that towers at 154' tall. We are happy that H&E Equipment Services had one we could use for this project.
A BIG thank you to all involved for your support of this project through the Route 66 Historical Village and/or the Tulsa Route 66 Main Street.
