On Wednesday, May 3, 2017, Marty Podskoch will speak on his new book, Connecticut Civilian Conservation Camps: History, Memories and Legacy. This event, cosponsored by Prosser Public Library and the Wintonbury Historical Society, will take place from 6:00 to 7:50 PM. The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) began on March 31, 1933 under President Roosevelt’s “New Deal” to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Depression. The CCC disbanded in 1942 due to the need for men in WW II. Registration in advance, while not required, is appreciated. Call 860-243-9721 or go online to www.prosserlibrary.info .
