My grandfather always spoke fondly of his years with the CCC. Do you know where I might find records from those days. I would love to know more details of what projects he worked on.
thank you for your time
This was answered on the Mass Moments Discussion Board for this subject under the separate topic "CCC at Foxboro." Refer to the posting of April 13, 2010 for more information.
Rightfully so there is much curiosity among children and grandchildren about a family member's time in the CCC and the contributions they made during Great Depresssion to improving our environment, particularly forests and parks. I recently met a 95 year old former enrollee in Gill (still sharp as a tack) who said the CCC made him who is today...a respected and engaged citizen.
You will need to know when and where he served while in the CCC before you can investigate the kinds of work projects he may have participated in. Good luck.
