Calendars will support museum


A 2017 Coulee Pioneer Museum calendar will feature pictures of the Third Powerhouse at Grand Coulee Dam, museum promoter Birdie Hensley said this week.

The calendar is dedicated to the men and women who worked on that huge project, the 50th anniversary for which is Jan. 3, 2017, Hensley stated.

Calendars are $10 and are available through Hensley, as is membership in the museum.

The calendar is full of historical dates of the overall Grand Coulee Dam project.

Typical of the historic dates is the arrival of 3,000 Coulee Dam souvenir coins on January 25 back in 1972. Another date you might not associate with the dam was the arrival of moon rocks for testing on Feb. 23, 1969.

The calendars feature an early period photo for each month.

The calendars are currently being put together and will be ready for purchase in the near future.
