Second CCC Corps Arrives

"AZR", December 4, 1933

A FORCE of nearly 200 from Colorado arrived in Phoenix yesterday to join the Phoenix Mountain Park Civlian Conservation Corps camp.

They are quartered in the park in a well-equipped camp which already has been constructed.

The group arriving here yesterday was the second CCC contingent to be established in the park.

The first company arrived more than two weeks ago and already has started preparations for carrying out an extensive program of improvement within the park, a 14,000 acre municipally-owned recreation area.

Arrival of yesterday's contingent brings the camp up to its full personnel.
