Clear blue skies and only slightly chilly breezes greeted visitors to Camden’s Town Green at noon Thursday for a tree dedication ceremony. The ceremony also served as a thank-you to those who donated trees to the Green. “The time is now,” Mayor Jeffrey Graham said of the need to thank those contributors.
