Chief of Police
The employees of River Valley Credit Union have a project each month to help their community. February was ” Paws we Care” month and the group raised enough money to purchase over 600 pounds of dog food and other items for the Camden City Pound! Thank you so much, River Valley and all citizens who donated. Please visit our facebook page, A Home for Fido where we post pictures of available dogs and share news about the Pound.
Sharing the Daffodils
The Camden Daffodil Festival Committee and Master Gardeners donated their time and gardening expertise Wednesday afternoon as they planted daffodils on the hillside of the front lawn at the Camden Police Department. The daffodils were donated by our Camden Walmart. We, at the Police Department just want to say thank you to all involved in this effort to spread the beautiful flowers around and help make our city more attractive and to live up to the tradition of the Daffodil Festival!
