The Beaumier Center, along with the One Book One Community group, present an evening of songs and stories about the Civilian Conservation Corps featuring Bill Jamerson.
Since 1992, Bill Jamerson has researched the CCC. He produced a documentary for Michigan PBS, recorded a CD of songs, and wrote a historical novel. He presents "Dollar-A-Day Boys" all across the Midwest. Over 2.5 million men enlisted in the corps and today their children and grandchildren have a keen interest in it. They often show up with CCC photo albums and memorabilia; they also share wonderful stories about their relatives with the audience. The story of the CCC has universal appeal because it's about underdogs who are given a second chance. Bill also presents CCC motivational assemblies at middle and high schools. Students love stories about teens and the struggles they experienced during The Great Depression.
