MO. a matching grant in 2012 to remove the 1978 roof addition and restore the structure to it’s original appearance, and qualify this venerable Route 66 Icon’s placement on the National Register of Historical Places. The “Raze the Roof” fundraising effort is underway and the Volunteer event to remove the roofs is scheduled for March 23-24. The roof must be removed by paid workers only, so we are seeking contributions to help fulfill this part of the grant requirements. Volunteer helpers are also needed. If the roof is not removed by early next month, the grant may be rescinded, which is not a good thing.

If you can help in any way, please send a contribution to: Boots Motel Roof Fund, c/o Southwest Missouri Bank, P.O. Box 812, Carthage, MO. 64836-0814. Contributions may also be made through PayPal using the Route 66 Chamber of Commerce account visit66@yahoo.com . (Please select “PERSONAL” and “OTHER” for your settings so we are not charged a transaction fee, and remark that this is for the “Boots Roof Fund”).

The Route 66 Chamber of Commerce will forward all donations to the owners of the Boots Motel with the contact information provided by the contributors. We have posted details about this event, contact information and a list of all contributors on the BootsMotel.com website (as they are received).

We can offer a free night at the Boots (depending on availability) for any donations of $250. to $500. and a free night plus your name on a plaque to be permanently installed in the front office for donations above $500. Thanks for sharing this.
