A primary objective of WVSCCCMA is to promote the legacy, the lasting achievements and individual heroics of the original CCC by overseeing the operation of the camp museum and providing public education outreach programs about past CCC achievements in West Virginia and other states. The primary goal for the near future is the installation of two CCC-type barracks that will serve as a museum location in Quiet Dell, WV.
The West Virginia State CCC Museum Association (WVSCCCMA) was organized and chartered in 2002 in response to a need to promote the CCC legacy in West Virginia and West Virginians who served elsewhere.
A 501(c)3 corporation, the organization has a nine-membered board, five members of which are either children of CCC alumni or former CCC enrollees, themselves. Regular and Life members stretch from New York to Florida and states in between.
WVSCCCMA regularly posts activities to the CCC Legacy FaceBook Page. http://www.facebook.com/groups/ccclegacy/ Visit the page and get more information about their projects and accomplishments.
James Ray Walters has been a member of the Board of Directors of the WVSCCCMA since 2011 and serves on several committees. He is chairman of the Parade Float Committee and has represented the organization at many reunions.
West Virginia History Day at the Legislature was begun by the West Virginia Archives and History Commission in 1997 and is officially designated by the commission as a special day to recognize the state’s rich and varied history. This is the 17th year that history advocates from around the state have been recognized.
Congratulations, Jimmy Ray!
Thanks for passing the legacy for future generations.
