The Family Heritage Committee sponsored a Mother’s Day parade and celebration Saturday to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Mother’s Day being officially recognized in the Unites States. It was the first such event in Camden and organizers said they hope it will be repeated yearly. The day started at 10:30 a.m. with a parade from Camden City Hall to Zemp Stadium.
