The Lake Minatare Breeze was the VCC (Veterans Conservation Corp) Company #2745 camp newspaper/newsletter which was published for the first time on April 15, 1935. The first editor was Herbert Musgrave. “The Breeze”, as it was affectionately known, was published bi-monthly in the beginning and then became a monthly newspaper with the printing of the October 10, 1935 issue. The Breeze remained a vital communication tool for the VCC camp until the camp was decommissioned and closed down on May 15, 1942.
