The Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society has released an image of the new mural set to be unveiled Saturday during the Lebanon Route 66 Festival at the city’s Boswell Park.

The 10-by-20-foot mural depicts a 1929 Texaco gas truck crossing the Gasconade River bridge in eastern Laclede County. It will join another mural at the park  depicting a 1957 Chevrolet driving Route 66 at the entrance to Lebanon, which was unveiled last year.

The mural unveiling will be part of a program at 2 p.m. Saturday of the festival on a stage by the murals.

The two-day festival begins at 1 p.m. with live music Friday at the historic Munger Moss Motel. Events include a cruise-in featuring antique, classic and custom cars, a photo booth, a barbecue, auction, dancing and more.

Saturday’s festivities will begin with a parade of antique, classic and custom cars at 10 a.m. along Historic Route 66 from the Lebanon Industrial Park near the Munger Moss Motel to Boswell Park.

Parking will be available at the Nelson Park ballfields, with shuttle service available to Boswell Park. Parking also will be available at nearby Elm Street businesses that are closed that day.

Festivalgoers should bring lawn chairs or blankets for activities at both locations.

“The festival is coming together nicely,” said Loretta Young, chairman of the Route 66 Society’s Festival Committee. “Everything is falling into place. We look forward to starting a new Route 66 tradition.”

The festival is making its return after a seven-year absence, thanks to a partnership between the Lebanon-Laclede County Route 66 Society and the Lebanon Parks and Recreation Department. Previous festivals were held from 2001 to 2009.

Special to GUIDON

On Wednesday, we celebrate the 242nd Army Birthday and National Flag Day, honoring our Army’s rich legacy and our Nation’s symbolic banner.

Through our many campaigns in defense of the United States of America, our flag has flown high, and our Army has remained strong.

This year’s Army Birthday theme, “Over There! A Celebration of the World War I Soldier,” commemorates the extraordinary efforts made by our Army 100 years ago, forging the future of innovation for our modern military today.

We also pay special tribute to America’s flag on this day — an observance officially established by Pres. Woodrow Wilson in 1916, recognizing our  powerful symbol of courage, freedom and patriotism.

We encourage you to join us in celebrating our Army and National colors on Wednesday. The Army Birthday run, traditional cake-cutting and retreat and streamer ceremony events build camaraderie among our “Team of Teams,” and allow us to render respect to our Army colors and Star-Spangled Banner.

We are truly grateful to our community and amazing Fort Leonard Wood team for their incredible commitment, each and every day.

After 242 years, our Army keeps rolling along because of your support.

Happy birthday, Army.

(Editor’s note: Savre is the Maneuver Support Center of Excellence and Fort Leonard Wood commanding general. Stanley is the MSCoE and Fort Leonard Wood command sergeant major.)
