You are invited to a program of stories and songs performed by Bill Jamerson remembering the Civilian Conservation Corps at the Madison Public Library on Tuesday, June 4, at 7:00 p.m.
Next Tuesday, Bill Jamerson, author, musicial and film maker, will present his program celebrating the Dollar-A-Day Boys at the Public Library.
Dollar-A-Day Boys was the name given to the young men in the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression. The CCC program created by the federal government paid the young men $1.00 a day with $25.00 sent home to their families each month. The CCC provided employment to more than 26,500 South Dakota men during the Depression. Imagine being 17 years old in 1935. Food is scarce, and jobs are non-existent. The chance to earn $1.00 a day would be a wonderful opportunity. Hear more about the men who served in the CCC at the Library next Tuesday.
