Author Linda McCann is coming to the Milford Memorial Library on Wednesday, September 14, at 6:30 p.m.
McCann will share about her book, Civilian Conservation Corps of Northeast Iowa. She will be reading from her book and sharing stories from personal interviews. There will also be time for questions and books will be available for purchase. The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal program to assist young men in supporting their families. Most Iowans know about all the work done in our state parks, but that was only 25 percent of what they worked on. Most of their work projects dealt with soil erosion, flood and drought prevention and planting trees. She is still working on the western part of the state, so she welcomes anyone who was in the CCC contacting her. This event is free to the public and no registration is required to attend.
Y.A.D.O.,Young Adults’ Day Off, will be held on Monday, September 12, from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. This event is for fourth through twelfth graders. We will be watching Remember the Titans and making Bleach Spray Bottle O Pioneer shirts. We do ask you bring a plain colored shirt, not white. Everything else, including food will be provided.
