Camden Business Appreciation Day
Saturday, April 21, 2018
11:00 am – 2:00 p.m.

We want folks to Shop Local and support Camden businesses!  So we sponsored our first Camden Business Appreciation Day.  Many of Camden’s fine merchants and businesses were ope and welcoming with refreshments, specials, deals, discounts and door prizes!

Many had historical information, stories, and photos on display about their businesses and/or the buildings where they are located. Other historical info about Camden’s buildings and businesses was displayed in the Town Hall, the Camden Archives were open (and very busy!) and we had lots of Bicentennial merchandise for sale.

It was a fun day, with beautiful spring weather, and some of the best businesses in the county participating  Thank you everyone!!
