The 2022 OHS Annual Meeting will take place at 7 PM on the 27th of September at the Congregational Church on Rte 10 in Orford, NH. Following a brief report on OHS activities and presentation of Board Officers, there will be a special program by David Govatski, retired Forester with the U.S. Forest Service from Jefferson, NH. The presentation is titled “We Can Take It: The Civilian Conservation Corps in the White Mountains.” The Civilian Conservation Corps was one of the most successful federal government programs in US history and ran between 1933-1942. There were 21 CCC camps in the White Mountains, each employing up to 200 men. During the Great Depression, one-of-four Americans were out of work, and financial collapse was familiar. Mr Govatski will consider the causes of the Great Depression, the role of the Dust Bowl, and the Bonus Army March on the nation’s capital. He will also discuss an attempt to create an all-female equivalent of the CCC by Eleanor Roosevelt and life in the CCC camps and their motto—“We Can Take It.” Featuring numerous photos of the local camps and the men working on projects, there will also be a display of CCC publications and memorabilia. Open to all interested people, the OHS Board of Directors hopes to see you there!
