    Imagine, you're 17 years old trying to survive during the Great Depression. Life is tough in Chicago. Food is scarce, jobs are non-existent and you've turned to petty crime to eke out a living. One day you hear about a new job works program created by the federal government that pays a "dollar-a-day." You soon find yourself in the Wisconsin northwoods spending long days planting trees and building roads. Over the next year, you put on 20 pounds, develop good work habits, gain confidence and make life-long friends. The job skills you learned help you find a job when you leave camp. Your experience in the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corps) turns out to be the most important event in your life. It turned you from a boy into a man.
    Please join Bill Jamerson at the Richmond Library for this musical tribute to the CCC, featuring heartfelt stories and hilarious tales from the 1930's. Preregistration required, limit 30. For all ages.
