“Dollar-A-Day Boys” with Bill Jamerson

If you’ve ever admired the overlooks at Rocky Mountain National Park, driven the Scenic Rimrock Highway in Colorado National Monument, or enjoyed a concert at the amphitheatre in Red Rocks Park, you’ve benefited from the labors of the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). Michigan-based author/songwriter Bill Jamerson will present music and storytelling about the program, which was part of the New Deal, at 1 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 11, at the Rifle Branch Library and at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 12, at the Glenwood Springs Branch Library. This event is free, open to the public, and refreshments will be served. For more information, visit
