Same hymnal, different song

The proposed Camden Sports Complex has become a matter of considerable debate within the Camden community. Sides have been taken, strategies employed, and divisive positions adopted that have resulted in a contentious atmosphere in our community. The Camden Referendum Recreation Coalition (CRRC) and the Camden For the Y organization are agreeing to disagree on some issues. However, we agree on many more, as we recognize we share a common cause.

We are both FOR recreational improvements, FOR health and wellness, FOR future generations, FOR progress and growth, and FOR CAMDEN! In these and other ways, we are truly united in purpose. Despite the different ideas for achieving that purpose, and the different songs we may be singing, it is friendships, family, and community that remain our driving forces, and we both agree that these should be maintained no matter the outcome of the current debate. One of the beauties of living in this small town is working together, worshipping together, shopping, playing, and raising families together. All of that is paramount for both CRRC and For The Y as we agree to respect, honor, and appreciate the convictions and commitments of each other.
