About the Event
Join FOPF and Marty Podskoch as we celebrate our Veterans and the CCC legacy in the forest. This is a milestone year for Civilian Conservation Corps: The 90th Anniversary of the CCC & Its Work in CT. Marty will be giving a presentation on the CCC and we can take a guided walking tour around the remains of Camp Lonergan - sites include the statue, CCC pillars, dynamite shed, and roller.
We’ll return to a campfire where we can share s’mores, hot chocolate, and invite any Veterans or their family to relate stories as we express our gratitude for their service. We’ll have CCC books for sale for anyone interested in learning more and supporting the CCC legacy.
