The main reason for the recent trip to Panama was to participate in paying homage to the builders of the Panama Canal as part of the Roosevelt Medal Descendant's Society headed by Mr. Marc Quinn. On Friday August 13th at 9:00 a.m., two Panama Canal Commission launches left from the pier by Pedro Miguel Locks for a trip through Gaillard Cut where we each thew a rose in remembrance of the great Army of Canal Builders. Over 80 persons participated. Conquering the Continental Divide is a neverending job -- the Commission is in the process of widening Gaillard Cut once again. These photos show some of the work being done. It is impossible to go thru the Cut and not be awed by what was accomplished there.
