The Centre County Historical Society is pleased to partner with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and William Marcum, local historian and research authority on the Poe Valley CCC Camp to invite the public to attend a day long program about the Civil Conservation Corps. The program will take place at Poe Valley State Park in the quiet mountain valley that surrounds Poe Lake, a perfect place for a family day. An important part of this day will include time for attendees to share their personal stories with others. A collection of memorabilia will be on display for you to enjoy and you may bring any mementos you have that you wish to share. Attendees will also learn how events brought about the creation of the Civilian Conservation Corps program that included the construction of Poe Valley State Park. There will be an original rare film featuring the Poe Valley Camp shown during the event after lunch. Enjoy a lunch inspired by authentic CCC menu boards. While there is no set cost for lunch, donations to help cover costs are appreciated. We ask that you RSVP and indicate if you will be having a meal.
