CCC to celebrate 80 years
Staff at Texas Parks and Wildlife Department are searching for those who served in the young men’s Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) during the 1930s and ’40s, to be a part of the CCC 80th anniversary event on Saturday and Sunday, April 6-7, in Palo Duro Canyon State Park at 11450 S.H. Park Road 5 in Canyon.
The weekend will feature a meal, various activities for CCC veterans, and a book-signing by Cynthia Brandimarte, author of the newly released Texas State Parks and the CCC: The Legacy of the Civilian Conservation Corps.
