Meet Aprylle Gilbert

  Recently Aprylle was appointed to the position of Ambassador at Large on behalf of the U.S. Route 6 Tourist Association. Many of you may remember Aprylle as the lady who in 2015 ran all 3,652 miles of the Grand Old Highway from the waterfront in Long Beach, California to Provincetown, Massachusetts which is located the tip of Cape Cod. She made the run to raise money for a youth center in her home town.       Don Doucette
