Thanksgiving and other holidays were important parts of camp life for Civilian Conservation Corps Enrollees. Learn about how these men celebrated Thanksgiving even when they were far from home. We'll discuss the history and influence of the CCC as well. Come and learn why these men had something to be thankful about, and why we should still be thankful for them.
Program will be at the park pavilion.
Please note, we're just learning how they celebrated Thanksgiving and the special things they did. We will not be serving any food.
