A Modern Version of a Day’s Pay—Keep the Manhattan Project Alive in the Tri-Cities!
The Flying Fortress
At the height of World War II, 51,000 employees of the Hanford Engineer Works each contributed to the war effort by donating a day’s wages for the construction of a Boeing B-17 bomber. Donated to the U.S. Army Air Forces and built by Boeing in Seattle, this “flying fortress” was later christened as “Day’s Pay” by a crowd of cheering Hanford workers.
The Reach is accepting donations towards its Manhattan Project exhibition. Total cost of the exhibition is projected at $100,000. Similar to the Hanford Site employees who donated an entire day’s pay towards the purchase of a B-17 Bomber, we are asking our loyal CREHST supporters to donate $100 or more to help make the Manhattan Project exhibition a reality now. Please help us preserve the story created by “the greatest generation”.
