Those interested should be prepared to sing a brief song and to read from the script. Scripts will be available today at the Danville Public Library.

Pole replacement to start

Danville Public Works announces a two-week street light pole replacement project will begin today.

Work will be on Fairchild Street from Gilbert Street to Vermilion Street. This work will require single lane closures and will be performed during the day.

Street light pole replacement will be performed in two phases beginning with the north side of Fairchild Street. Depending on which phase, street lights on one side or another will be lit at night during the course of the project.

Motorists are urged to use caution throughout the work zone.

For information, call the Public Works Department at 431-2288.

Program focuses on CCC

Danville Public Library will host “Dollar-a-Day Boys,” a musical tribute to the Civilian Conservation Corps presented by Bill Jamerson, author, songwriter and filmmaker, beginning at 1 p.m. Wednesday in the first floor meeting room.

The program is a nostalgic look at the 1930s Federal Works Program that gave employment to 3.5 million men. Hilarious stories, foot-tapping songs and a short video makes this a “must see” experience.

People whose family members participated in the CCC program are encouraged to bring their memorabilia and share in the discussion.

A display highlighting the CCC efforts in Vermilion County, provided by the Vermilion County Museum, will be on view on the second floor of the library the month of March.

District 118 plans forum

Danville Community Consolidated School District 118 will host a Board of Education Candidate Forum from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday in the board room of the Jackson School building, 516 N. Jackson St.
