I'm not going to say that the City of Camden doesn't have serious and even overwhelming challenges. High crime rate, unemploymentand all the ills that face a once thriving center for manufacturing and industry. But on this particular sunny day last Thursday thousands of young people gathered for Camden's Annual Youth Day. Check out my video of Camden Fun Day with Camden Mayor Dana Redd.
Looking at the throngs of happy kids and volunteers I was reminded that there are folks doing good in Camden NJ including one of my oldest friends Stan White from the Camden School District. (That's him on the right.)
Modest to a fault he's one of Camden's most valuable players and the city is lucky to have him. I'm reminded that that behind all the tough headlines - there are a lot of folks making a difference across the river.
