On Saturday, Sept. 19, we will be celebrating the 75th anniversary of the building of Loggers Lake by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
Bill and Judi Aaron, who operate the campground at Loggers Lake, said this event will start at 1 p.m. The Aarons also said the day use fee of $2 will be waived to honor the hard work and accomplishments of young men who built Loggers Lake.
The campgrounds and lake dam were constructed by CCC Local 1730, which was made up mostly of residents from Dent and Reynolds counties. In the 1960s, a monument was placed on the grounds of the camp commemorating the CCC Local 1730.
