DAM STORIES. The 60th anniversary of the start of construction and 50th anniversary of the dedication of the John Day Dam will be in 2018.

Did you attend the opening of the bridge or other events? Do you have photographs of that period? You and your stories are an important part of Sherman County history. Your photos to illustrate your story will be scanned and returned. Send your stories to Sherman County Historical Museum, P.O. Box 173, Moro, OR 97039 or to firstname.lastname@example.org (with subject line Story for FTR). Questions? Contact the Museum: 541-565-3232. Deadline for submission is February 28, 2018.
