Earlier this month, members of the Camden Garden Club and members of the Camden-Rockport Middle School Student Council planted 100 large daffodil bulbs in strategic locations around the shrubbery in front of the school. The rain began in earnest before the task was done, but adults and children alike were undaunted.

Some of the current eighth-grade student council gardeners were among the fifth-graders who helped the garden club plant trees and shrubs in those same beds three years ago.
