The Civilian Conservation Corps put a lot of people to work and left a lasting impact on the Illinois Valley.  Learn more about the men it employed during the program, “Dollar-A-Day Boys!: A Musical Tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps.”

Based on the novel, “Big Shoulders,” it will be presented by author Bill Jamerson using music, video and reading excerpts.

The program is at 6pm Tuesday at the La Salle Public Library.  It’s part of The Way We Worked exhibit.
