A Musical Tribute to the CCC
Wednesday, June 1 at 6:30pm
The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal work program created by President Franklin Roosevelt in the heart of The Great Depression. During its nine year run from 1933-1942, 2.6 million men enrolled across the country including eighty six thousand in Minnesota. An average of 51 camps operated in Minnesota each year with a total financial obligation of 85 million dollars. Our local CCC Camp opened up October 29, 1935 outside of Plainview where the men helped build Whitewater State Park.
Join us at the library for an evening of stories and music with author/songwriter Bill Jamerson. There will be a question and answer session and book signing following his hour-long presentation. Former CCC members and their families are encouraged to attend and bring photo albums and memorabilia. For more information, visit Bill’s website at: billjamerson.com.
