5/17 Fifty Shades of Blue & Gray 6:30 p.m.

Some people still think the Victorians were repressed, prudish, and avoided sex whenever possible.  If that were so, how do we explain the growth of prostitution and pornography during the Civil War?  This program provides an interesting, entertaining, and revealing look at Victorian society, sex, and the soldier in the War between the States. Presented by Kathy Wilson Historical Perspectives.

6/7 Civilian Conservation Corps 6:30 p.m.

The Civilian Conservation Corps was a federal program to assist young men in supporting their families. It worked primarily on renewing natural resources. Most people know about the state park work, but in Iowa, over 75% of the work projects dealt with soil erosion, drought and flood prevention and planting trees. There was soil erosion work done in the Polk City area. Linda McCann has spoke with 19 men who worked in the CCC and shares their memories. She continues to research the CCC and would love to hear from men, or families who had men, in the CCC.
