About 200 trainloads of spoil (dirt) a day were r emoved and carried to dumps from one to 23 miles away. The du mps were carefully managed by a yardmaster who expedited the arrival and departure of each train. The dirt and rocks were used to fill in low lying areas in the Canal Zone, to build the foundation of what would become new towns like Fort Amador (including the causeway and fortified islands) and Balboa on the Pacific side near Panama City. It wa s also used to build Gatun Dam and a breakwater on th e Atlantic side. Some of it was just dumped in the jungle, covering as much as a thousand acres wh ich in the rainy season became huge seas of mud.

Page 8 Panama Canal Museum Exhibits The Museum is planning a potpourri of exhibits at t his year's PC Society’s reunion at the Rosen Shingl e Creek in Orlando. Because many people have not been able to visit the Museum in Seminole, we are going to bring the Muse um to Orlando-well, maybe not the whole Museum, but many of the items displayed therein, s uch as those pertaining to the Spanish era, French era, American construction era, chief engine ers, Panama Railroad, canal operations, indigenous tribes of Panama, and defense of the canal. We also plan to add three ne w areas to this year's exhibit: Visits by Famous People — U.S. and international dignitaries such as presid ents, film and sport stars, members of royalty, etc. Canal Zone Health System — people and methods used to make the Canal Zone the healthiest tropical region in t he world, eradication of yellow fever, DDT trucks, Gorgas and his hospit al, etc. Panama Canal Pilots — items reflecting the critical importance of these professionals. If you have any documents, photos or artifacts that will help us tell the story in these three ar eas, please contact the Museum and let us know what you have. We may like to borrow them. Of course, we are bringing back the ever popul ar town site maps and may add some displays to comp lement the Panama Canal Society reunion theme of "Viva Panama." Our partners at UF will be back showcasing the ir plans and capabilities regarding the digitizatio n and preservation of the Museum collection. The exhibit will feature governm ent materials and maps, collections highlighting th e construction of the canal, and visual and photographic materials from t he history of the American Era of the Panama Canal. It will be an interesting, informative and nostalgi c exhibit. Don't miss it! Silent Auction This could be our best silent auction yet — if we get some more great donations! Don't miss the opportunity to donate : a special piece of artwork, a prized out-of-print book, a useful household decoration, a nostalgic it em, something from your Panama collection, etc. Although certainly not a "white elephant" event, you may have something that would be a "hot" item for the auctio n. By the way, several "hot" items were donated b y some of our partners at the University of Florida for the silent auction. Be su re to see them for yourself at the reunion! The silent auction begins at 9 AM on Thur sday and continues until 5 PM on Saturday, when top bidders can claim their treasure s! Cultural Seminars One of Panama's most eloquent conservationists will be the speaker at the reunion cultural semina rs. In addition to holding a position as professor at the University of Panama and the University of Santa Ma ria de Antigua, Dr. Stanley Heckadon-Moreno worked to establish Panama's national park system and coordinated the Panama Canal Watershed Monitoring Project. In recent years, he also worked to establish the Smith sonian Tropical Research Institute's marine lab at Galeta as a center for environmental education. Plan to a ttend the two seminars which are scheduled to be held on Frid ay and Saturday at 2 PM. nrn nr rrrr r

Page 9 Panama Canal Museum Cruises Not one, but two, exciting Museum fundraising cruis es are on the docket for later this year and early next year. Something for everybody! The September 26, 2010, 14-night Canada/New En gland cruise on the Celebrity Summit will take Museum cruisers to ports in Rhode Island, Mass achusetts, Maine, Nova Scotia, Quebec (two nights), and Prince Edward Island. This round trip cruise from Bayonne, New Jersey, is scheduled to coincide with the beautiful fall folia ge for which this region is famous. Once you hear about the ship lined up for our seven-day March 6, 2011, Museum cruise to the Eastern Caribbean, the ports become almost imma terial! Royal Caribbean's brand new (not even sailing yet as this is written) Allure of the Seas sister ship to the line's Oasis of the Seas, is bound to wow all our Museum cruisers. Besides the usual pleasant shipboard activities, the Allure' s attractions include a carousel, two surf simulato rs for surfers, a zip line, a rising tide bar, rock climbing and an AquaTheater. And you will wan t to be sure to take in Central Park, the Royal Promenade, the Casino Royale, Studio B (ice s hows and ice skating), and the sports court/miniatu re golf course! Oh, yes, by the way, the ship leaves from Fort Lauderda le and goes to the Bahamas, St. Thomas, and St. Maa rten, before returning to Fort Lauderdale! Make your reservations soon with Travel Leader s (386-445-0007 or 888-652-1365) to reserve the cur rent prices. If you still have questions at the time of the reunion, Pat and Arvid Olson and June Barlow Riesz will be in the Museum Exhibit Room to answer them —and take your reservations! Store As we go to print, ordering of store items for the reunion is still in progress. But we do know alrea dy that the Museum's 2010 collectible ornament and 2011 full-color calen dar are going to be extra special. Both feature th e work of our much admired Zonian artist, Al Sprague The ornament is taken from Al's pollera painting titled "Katalina de Balboa." Al explains, "This oil painting features a young woman who reminded me of my classmate Kathleen Steiner so I named it after her." Although Kathleen, unfortunately, died a few months ago, this painting is a beautiful tri bute to her, and the ornament is a standout with its frame reflecting el ements of the timbleques the women are wearing in t heir hair. "Katalina de Balboa" and 13 other memorable Sprague works are represented in our 2011 calendar, which will be a new, larger size than our previous calendars. New books, plush alligators (commemorating our partnership with the UF Gators!), bright yellow tote bags, and a new Shorty & Slim CD (Rust, Termites and Juega Vivos — with music dedicated to a deceased Museum board member, Chris Skeie ) are among the items you will see at the reunion thi s year. We've also been able to restock the ever pop ular Cocina Panamea and La Pollera which will help carry out the Society's reunion theme, Viva Panama! Dorn Thomas a Museum trustee, will be available for anyone in terested in finding out more about the Museum’s Roosevelt Medal Certificate program fo r descendents of Roosevelt Medal holders. We'll have a few of our store items for sale i n the Museum Exhibit Room; but to see them all, be sure to look for the Panama Canal Museum's tables in the Vendors' Room! See you there! Volunteers We always need lots of volunteers for all the se activities in the exhibit room. The work is fun —that is why a number of our volunteers return year after year. The people come to you, and there are even some sit-down jobs! If you’d like to help us with the silent auction, store, or any of the ot her myriads of jobs we have available, please conta ct the Museum. We need YOU!
