As a former elementary school principal and school board member in Kershaw County, I strongly support the building of the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate it. I have been reading about and discussing this issue over the past few months. I have reached the conclusion that the pros are greater than the cons to having a vibrant sports complex in Camden. As many of your readers know, “ a healthy community starts with the people and the place where we live. The depth and strength of our relationship with family, friends and neighbors is the web through which we weave daily. Nurturing that web in spirit, mind and body starts with each and every individual. As a leading non-profit strengthening community through healthy living, the Y works tirelessly to teach healthy habits to individuals, families and kids while inspiring a life time love of physical activity and overall wellness.” I believe as others do that everyone, regardless of age income or background, deserves to be healthy, confident, connected and secure. Let’s continue to strengthen the local community, Camden and Kershaw County, by adopting the proposal for this complex and reap the benefits of such a valuable educational and recreational resource for our community.
