"CITY GIRL" MURAL INSTALLED!

In August of 1928, film director F.W. Murnau filmed the wheat harvest scenes of the Fox silent feature film "City Girl" in Thorn Hollow, five miles from the Gem.

 

The film used local harvesting crews and livestock.  We knew a lady whose husband was one of the farmhands and remembered visiting the filming.

The layout of our mural is based upon an original "City Girl" lobby card.  The images are local harvest scenes that were promotional images for the film.

 

The mural was produced and installed by John Sasser of Integrity Design and Copyworks, Walla Walla WA.

GEM RECEIVES $84K BLUE SKY GRANT


The Gem received an $84,250  Pacific Power "Blue Sky" grant this spring to install a 26 Kw solar array on the facility roof.  Gem is an Oregon Energy Trust  project and we had long hoped to have the opportunity to utilize renewable energy at some point.  The new roof system was engineered for this possibility.  The system has been installed and was dedicated in June.
