The city of Camden, Camden Parks and Trees Commission and Camden Tree Foundation celebrated Arbor Day on Nov. 7 at the National Steeplechase Museum in Camden. The event honored Geraldine “Gerry” McBryde, a Kirkover Hills resident who many say is responsible for beautifying that subdivision by planting flowers, plants and trees in the area. Newly-elected Camden City Councilwoman Deborah Davis, currently chair of the Camden Parks and Trees Commission opened the celebration by explaining the meaning and history of Arbor Day.
