Camden Central High School hosted Track and Field Day for Special Olympics on May 10 for some very special students and residents in the community. The annual event was held in the Gymnasium and members of the CHS Student Body; faculty members and community volunteers assisted with the program. Debbie Watson said everybody did a great job with more than 100 students helping to make it a success. Watson smiled and said, “This day is for students with special needs who are handicapped that may not be able to participate in regular sports. We had 62 participants and every one of them is a winner.

Sponsors include the Camden Elks Lodge, whose members graciously spent their time to cook for the event, United Way, Camden Walmart, and Lakeshore Methodist Assembly.”

From wheelchair races to walks and dashes, the participants had a great time at the event held this year in memory of Mickey Watson and Pam Chmelik. The Camden Central Band played throughout the event as everyone was treated to a meal of hamburgers, hot dogs, and of course, Debbie Watson’s famous cookies.
