Working on the Pit River Bridge under construction. In the picture below, 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 the WWII veterans, aging rapidly. Some are WWII or Korean veterans. The oldest worker that attended our Dam Worker's Reunion Luncheon will be 103 years old this month! Happy Birthday James Brock! One of the youngest, Don Cross turned 87 last month.

The 3rd printing of our book "Those Dam Kids" continues to sell great. Almost 300 pages, it is full of great photos and short stories during the "Boomtown Years" - a quick must read....and sure to be a collectible book in years to come.
