I have spent my entire life, except for my college years, in Camden, and I am proud to say that my son, daughter-in-law and grandson live here also.

A new day at McDonald’s

Camden children had something to celebrate Dec. 16 as they were released from school for winter break. The McDonald's at 215 DeKalb St. treated youngsters to a brand-new Play Place, face-painting, a ceiling of balloons and Santa hats for every attendee to spread Christmas cheer.

Three lucky winners went home with iPods, and an unsuspecting customer won a brand new 32-inch flat screen television. The store was filled with families from 2 ...
