Dollar-A-Day Boys!

A musical tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal works program created by President Franklin Roosevelt in the heart of The Great Depression.  During its nine year run beginning in 1933, over 139,000 young men in Ohio enrolled in the camps.  The camps were run by the army with an average of 33 camps in operation for each year.  The enrollees were paid $1 a day with $25 sent home to their families each month.  The money kept many families from  starving.

The CCC in Ohio planted millions of trees, built hundreds of bridges and dams, constructed over 3000 miles of roads, did erosion control, built check dams, stocked fish, fought forest fires, and built several state parks including John Bryan, Tar Hollow, Scioto Trail, and Shawnee State Park.  A few of the local camps were in Lebanon, Yellow Springs, Xenia, Wilmington and Hamilton, Ohio.

Along with a novel and CD of songs on the CCC, Jamerson has produced a PBS film, Camp Forgotten. Bill will talk about many of the interesting enrollees he has met over the years and CCC projects he has visited.  A question and answer period and book signing will follow his presentation.  Former CCC'ers and their families are encouraged to attend.  People are invited to bring photo albums and CCC memorabilia.

In today's world people want to be healthy, and they want to be happy.  Instead they are getting stressed out, depressed, getting less sleep, harboring more negative thoughts and feeling isolated.  

Laughter Yoga is a revolutionary idea - simple and profound.  Anyone can laugh for no reason without relying on humor, jokes, or comedy.  As an exercise routine it is a complete wellbeing workout.  Laughter Yoga is a combination of deep breathing exercises from yoga and it also includes laughter exercises which oxygenates our body and brain, making us feel more healthy and energetic.
