New Richland Public Library hosted Bill Jamerson on Thursday, April 23.

Jamerson goes around the country giving presentations on the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC). The CCC camps were all military run with long bunkhouses and mess halls. There were libraries and blacksmith shops. The camps were basically self-sufficient and were most 5 to 15 miles from the nearest town.

Jamerson started the presentation by telling a story he heard from one of the CC boys. One day in April 1937 a sergeant walked into one of the bunkhouses and held up a CCC pillowcase. He said to the boys that each one of them was going to spend 25 cents on a pillowcase to send to their mother for Mother’s Day. The men then instantly began grumbling because 25 cents was a lot back then.

Young people decide to grow their hair for many purposes.

It was 3 or 4 years ago when 11-year-old Cloie Arndt started growing her hair for a purpose. That purpose was to honor her grandmother, Cindy, who was battling cancer.  

It was one way she felt she could "do something."  Friday night, Jan. 9, 2015, became a night to remember for Cloie and her family as she went to the Geneva Cancer Auction at the Geneva Bar and Grill with her hairdresser, Rhonda Haried.

Cloie, daughter of Kelly and Tiffany Arndt of Geneva, donated her "locks of love" for "Wigs for Kids" during the first night of the auction this year.

In spite of the fact that there was not much snow left on the ground due to the mid-40 degree temperatures on Saturday afternoon, December 13th, Santa did manage to arrive in Geneva at 2 p.m. to greet all of the children.

Prior to his arrival about 50 kids, along with the help of many of their parents, turned out to play Bingo. Chase Simon, 8-week-old son of Travis and Stacy Simon, was the youngest one in attendance this year.
