Although several supermarkets in Camden boast bakeries, Mulberry Market owners Peter and Fran Rowland say they are confident their new bake shop at 536 E. DeKalb Street will fill a niche the supermarkets have just been too big to fit into.

The Mulberry Market, which opened Friday in the building once occupied by the old Camden Bakery, is a community bake shop run by hometown people, which Peter Rowland said separates his operation from the bakery/delis of the bigger stores.

As he cut a huge slab of dough into sections to be formed into loaves of bread, Rowland explained he wanted the goods from his establishment to be a step above those from other places, thus the decision to make his own dough fresh, mix his own fruit fillings and use an imported brand of pure butter only available to professional bakers.

Though much of Rowland’s work is on pastries, cookies and desserts, he said his first love is bread -- and an almost endless variety of bread. Having worked in places as diverse as Cape Cod, Mass., and the wilderness of Montana, he said he has had many opportunities to pick up on regional and ethnic recipes, including a Portugese bread recipe and an “old hippie recipe” for sunflower seed bread..

“To run a bakery without bread would be a sin,” he said.

The board of a newly organized bank announced this week that the bank has met its capital requirement of $3.5 million and wil open a downtown office June 7.

Guy S. Hutchins Jr., Colonial Bank Chairman, said cash and commitments to the business venture totaled more than the minimum requirement set by the state.

Remodeling at the 1111 Broad Street office is already underway.


From movie themes and Gershwin classics to folk music and Sousa marches, the Camden Community Concert Band will present a widely diverse program Sunday during its annual Spring Concert.

The CCCB concert will be the last performance in a gala afternoon of music on the grounds at the American Society of Interior Designers Showcase. The ASID Designer Showcase is located at the Hobkirk Inn, 1919 Lyttleton Street.


The Kershaw County School Board made a much-postponed decision Thursday, appointing Betty Sue Webber,  ATEC’s acting director, to the permanent leadership position at the district’s vocational school next year.

Webber had received strong support from her faculty and from other community members, who spoke on her behalf at previous board meetings. The item had been on the agenda twice before, but had been postponed.


Michael Toby Goodwin was named best stepper during Kappa Phi Omega Fraternity’s Step Finale ’93, recently held at Phelps Auditorium.

The program featured a variety of talent and step competition from high school students.

At the program, fraternity adviser Teresia Hayes presented the awards to Goodwin; Thomas Cabbagestalk, Kappa of the year; and Goodwin, Cabbagestalk and Rinardie Aldrich, most dedicated members.

Irene Reames awarded Goodwin a $500 scholarship in memory of her son, Bruce Artell Reames.
