  • You’ve heard of the Route 66 Alliance? The effort to promote the iconic road across America?
    Well, now there’s a similar movement afoot to focus on Highway 54. It’s called “Discover More on Rt. 54.”
    A meeting was recently held at Smith's Restaurant in Collins to discuss current and upcoming events, and the Our Discover More on Route 54 committee is looking for members in the lake area who would be willing to join and promote the area and local businesses along the highway.
    The El Dorado Springs Chamber of Commerce presented a donation to Discover More on Rt. 54.
    The Beyond Bargains Flea Market in Hermitage and the Pomme de Terre Chamber are new members. J & A Traffic Products in Blue Springs donated the signpost for the Discover project.
    Anyone interested in joining the committee or sponsoring Discover More on Rt. 54 can visit the www.Discover54.com website.  Committee
    President Warren Love and other members discussed the need for more locations along Highway 54 to post signs, having a booth at festivals and other large community events, and ordering smaller portable signs for businesses to display.
    Another issue discussed at the needing was getting more people involved from the Nevada and Camdenton areas.
