We have Thanksgiving Day, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. "Giving Tuesday" is celebrated on November 29th, and is a way to "Give Back" with an online donation to those non-profit organizations who enrich our community. Please join with others for this one day of online giving to support NON-PROFIT organizations such as ours.

One can only image what it was like in those days of construction on Shasta Dam in the late 30's and early 40's. These are just a few of the many photographs in our collection. 


Working on the Pit River Bridge under construction.  In the picture above, look down at the river, that is the old Pit River Bridge in the background. 

Not many of the early workers are still among us. From the construction years, "those men of steel" are like all the WWII veterans, aging rapidly and will soon be only in our memories. The oldest worker in our area was honored in last year's November Veteran's Day Parade in our City, and celebrates his 104th birthday this December! Happy Birthday Jim Brock!
(WWII veteran).

Our book "Those Dam Kids" is a great addition to any book collection. Almost 300 pages, it is full of photos and short stories by the offspring of the workers on Shasta Dam.  Sharing their memories during the "Boomtown Years", it is a quick must read and sure to be a collectible book in years to come.  Above is Mr. Mathew Rumboltz with "those Dam kids" and the first 7th & 8th grade students at Toyon School 1938. click: those-dam-kids-book.php
