CCC Worker Bronze Statue and Mel

Melvin Hermanson donated the funds to procure this bronze statue. For now the statue is situated inside the Hill City Chamber of Commerce building and it will be placed outside the new South Dakota CCC Museum at Hill City. (Details further down on blog.) The plaque mentions his nickname of "Sarge" Melvin Hermanson.

An article about the Corps appeared in this morning's Watsonville (California) Register-Pajaronian. It mentioned that South Dakota was erecting a statue as part of the tribute events. My family is from South Dakota, and I will be visiting in September. I hope to be able to see the Hill City Museum at that time. Great web site!
