The eyes of the world are on us; Let’s keep it clean!

May 7, 2016 32nd Annual Cuba, MO Trash Bash. Details Below!

Layton & Trenton Myers have adopted a street as part of Viva Cuba's Adopt-A-Street program.

The Myers brothers have adopted S. Smith Street in Cuba as part of Viva Cuba’s Adopt-A-Street program.

Viva Cuba created an Adopt-A-Street program to help keep Cuba, MO clean and to enhance the community as good place to do business and raise a family.  Since its inception, the program has had several adoptions by businesses, organizations, and individuals as the signs around town will attest.

Two young street adopters Layton & Trenton Myers don’t see it as just a way to get their names on a sign. As these photos show, they are actively making good on their commitment. These two young men aren’t the ones throwing out the trash, but they are willing to help pick it up.

Myers Brothers serve their community.

The Myers brothers honor their commitment with regular trash pickup on their adopted street.

Recently two more of Cuba’s young men Alex and Nick Laxton were spotted picking up the trash around their dad’s business. We appreciate the help of all Cuba’s citizens and businesses in keeping things clean.

Alex and Nick Laxton pick up around their dad's Hwy. 19 insurance agency.

You are never too young to learn to keep it clean. Alex and Nick Laxton are cleaning up around their dad’s business.

Whether we like it or not, with social media, photos and comments of travelers make their way around the world in just minutes. Viva Cuba appreciates those who are helping in Cuba’s beautification. Recently Cuba had a film crew in town using our background for a business video. We have more film crews coming to shoot scenes on Route 66.

The tourist scene will soon be upon on us.  Jackie at the Fanning Outpost US 66 General Store often mentions that travelers tell her that they found Cuba to be a friendly and pretty town. And we all know that Cuba is a generous townServing your community is a form of generosity that doesn’t always take money.

Viva Cuba appreciates the businesses, organizations, and individuals who continue to improve and maintain their premises on an ongoing basis. Businesses and yards free of trash, debris, and other unsightly items help Cuba put its best foot forward. That has an economic impact. 

Viva Cuba also values businesses such as MEPCO and organizations such as the Knights of Columbus and the Route 66 Parrot Heads that adopt MoDOT’s highways just outside of Cuba for trash pickup. Viva Cuba was the first Adopt-A-Highway organization in the state of Missouri, so we value that program too.  Attractive byways leading to our town are important.

The Next Big Thing is the 32nd  Trash Bash on May 7!

Join Viva Cuba May 7 at the Viva Cuba Garden at the 4-way for our 33rd Trash Bash. We will gather at 8:00 am.

Bring tools, gloves, and wear old clothes. We will pick up trash, pull weeds, and leave things cleaner than we found them. We hope businesses and organizations will take part to spring clean their premises too. 

The Top Dawg hot dog truck will also be open so that you can buy a specialty dog after the pickup.  They are a tasty Cuba, MO treat.

The first weekend in May is also the city-wide cleanup week. Watch the paper for details.


Route 66 has been good to Cuba, Missouri. Happy 90th Anniversary to the Mother Road.

Route 66 brought development to Cuba, Missouri. It continues to bring travelers from all over the world.  Let’s keep it clean for them!
