The West Virginia chapter of the Civilian Conservation Corps held its 10th annual fall jubilee Saturday afternoon.

Volunteers from the Quiet Dell United Methodist Church cooked for members who were there to recognize those who served our country and witness their induction into the hall of fame.

Men who served in the CCC built parks, fought forest fires, and helped their communities in other ways.

"It's more than just a reunion. It's something we do to honor the CCC boys, young and old, in our society today," said Robert Anderson of the WV CCC Museum Association.

"It's just wonderful. It's a wonderful feeling, especially because I get to play for all the people that are here, Civilian Conservation Corps," said Markie Shellhammer, who performed for the people.

Anderson said the state's chapter is the only group in the country with a CCC Hall of Fame. A museum is also in the works in Quiet Dell.
