This year there was focus on the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps and the 80th Anniversary of the CCC. To help celebrate the connection between the CCC and Corps Network members, CCC alumni were invited to visit and share their CCC experience. CCC alumni in attendance were Walter Atwood, FL; George Smith, MD; and Henry Sulima, FL.
For several months, videographers Lance and Brandon Kramer of Meridian Hill Pictures have been attending Chapter #113 meetings and events and filming video interviews. This video coverage will be integrated into the story of the Green Corps of Washington, DC to produce a video that will tell of the American Corps experience of the present and past. A portion of this video was shown before the full assembly.
The relationship with The Corps Network is long-term. Since NACCCA first worked with the National Association of Service and Conservation Corps (former name of The Corps Network) there has been a tie between the organizations. Even in change we continue this relationship on behalf of the CCC alumni.
In addition to our CCC Legacy alumni, other members in attendances were John Irish, VP CCC Legacy and recipient of the Legacy Achievement Award; Joan Sharpe, President of CCC Legacy and Sponsor Representative; Jack Sulima, CCC Legacy, Secretary, and son of CCC alumni Henry Sulima.
