One February 12, the Victorville Old Town Route 66 Historical Society cut the ribbon on their new office. Located on Seventh Street in Victorville, it is located right next to the Santa Fe Trading Company and the Catholic Book Store.
Founders Barbara Powers and Sharon Foster were elated about the grand opening. The organization celebrated with a visit from the Hi Country Harmonaires Barbershop Quartet group who brought red roses in recognition of the upcoming Valentines Day.
Many Victor Valley Chamber members plus dignitaries from throughout the High Desert were on hand to offer their congratulations.
City Councilman Ryan McEachron helped cut the ribbon in front of the society’s banner, and other government representatives gave proclamations to the founders in honor of the event. State Assemblyman Tim Donnelly’s representative Dawn Sikes, County Supervisor Lovingood’s community liaison Garner Morris, and Wally Linn, field representative for Congressman Paul Cook, all made presentations.
The group consists of committed volunteers working for the redevelopment and economic growth of Old Town Victorville. Their vision is to encourage revitalization of the area through public and private enterprise. They also work towards preserving and enhancing the historical and cultural heritage of Victorville by advocating for the restoration and economic development of Old Town Victorville through public and private enterprise.
To accomplish these goals, the Old Town Victorville Collaboration will work with civic leaders and with existing and new businesses.
