Friday, more than 80 people crowded into the Camden Archives and Museum to help dedicate the first five benches in the city of Camden’s new Leaders Legacy recognition program. City officials moved the ceremony indoors due to a rainy forecast. Luckily, the rain held off long enough for honorees and their families to have their pictures taken at each respective bench outside.
