    Molly Bellamey, formerly on the National Road Association of Illinois Board of Directors, will educate on the purpose and funding of the road that began in 1811 in Cumberland, MD and ended in Vandalia, IL in 1837. She will describe pioneers who moved west, and how they managed the work and hardships of travel in the early 1800s. The National Scenic Byways Program will be examined along with things to see and do today along the Road in Illinois. Not to be missed, Molly's delightful children's book, Patch on the National Road, will be shared. Lucky attendees will go home with a copy!
