Lassen High Alumni DVD
At a chance encounter at the annual Lassen High Alumni 2005 picnic, Chuck Dickens and Tim Purdy, both wanted to do something special for the school’s upcoming centennial in 2007.
It was decided to locate and digitize all the Rays From The Purple yearbooks, with the first one making its debut in 1904. It was quite the challenge, but with assistance from a variety of people the mission was accomplished.
The 2013 edition contains 116 yearbooks, amounting to over 15,000 pages chronicling the life and times of the students/staff/faculty/administrators of Lassen High High School, originally known as Lassen County High School, later as Lassen Union High School, now as Lassen High School.
Please note this DVD is NOT for viewing on a DVD player; view it on a computer as you would a Website.
2017 Purdy’s Private Reserve Calendar
The calendar project dates back to 1977 when I first supplied historic photographs to the Lassen High School Graphics Art class. This continued until 2000 when the program was cancelled. In 2011, it was resurrected briefly for the Lassen High Alumni Association. Now, forty years later, I am undertaking the calendars as a solo endeavor.
Most importantly the calendars contain a wide variety of historic photographs of the region so do not let the cover fool you. Some of the photographs featured are the 1891 log slide in the Susan River Canyon, Camp Lasco, 1923, the Lassen Monuments, 1920, Eagle Lake’s Gallatin Beach, 1960, the Fruit Growers sawmill, 1941 to name a few.
Note: If you prefer, the calendar (s) can be mailed to you with an invoice, as some folks rather avoid online payment method.
