Preserving the Heritage of Zonians
The Canal Zone is gone, but....
Let the memories live forever!!
The Panamanian poet Ricardo Miro, in his poem “Patria” suggests that Panama was made so
small, so that it could be carried in the heart. We all
carry Panama in our heart until the end of time.
the heritage of Zonians with images
and information for over 20 years.
you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind
you, saying, "This is the way; walk in it" (Isaiah 30:21)
My goal is to bring a little happiness
to my fellow Zonians through images from home in the Canal Zone. If I can get
someone to smile, utter a wow or a sigh; then doing this web site was worth every minute
and dollar spent creating and maintaining them.

My Bio and
who are Zonians carry a solemn responsibility. As our parents before,
and we ourselves, have lived, benefited and accepted the administrations
of the government of the Panama Canal Zone, we became "de facto"
citizens of that government we have become "Zonians".
That government is no longer viable, and the Canal Zone no longer exits.
Yet our earned birthright as Zonians, we carry forever. We carry the
responsibility to perpetuate this birthright so all men will know of
the achievements of the "Ditchdiggers" and the successes of
the government and its society. We Zonians, and other like us, carry
the responsibility to be the Guardians of this piece of history.
