Two weeks ago, Camden City Council unanimously approved a proclamation of appreciation for the Price House Commission. Unfortunately, commissioners were unable to attend that meeting, but came in full force Tuesday night to receive the accolade. Not only did Mayor pro Tem Jeffrey Graham present the commission with the proclamation, but, on behalf of Alfred Mae Drakeford, who was out of town on business, gave each commissioner one of the city’s new Office of the Mayor Coins.
