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.

YOUR STORIES. Gladys Wesley, editor of Sherman County: For The Record, Sherman County Historical Society’s twice-yearly historical anthology, reminds us that the editorial team is always looking for stories related to Sherman County for future issues… stories about places, families or events. Time marches on and for the young people of today the events of the 1950s and 1960s are as much history as the late 1800s were when the historical society was started in 1945. 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?
