The 28th Annual Black Walnut Festival was held in Camden this past weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 17-18. The annual parade, held on Saturday, featured this year’s parade grand marshal, Lloyd Cross. Cross, 87, is a WWII veteran who served in the Pacific 8th Army from 1945-1947 in Honshu, Japan. He came to Camden in 1947. He was a Camden fireman and former fire chief, and was a 60-year member of the Masonic Lodge 159. Cross is a member of the Shriners and has collected approximately $137,000 in donations over 29 years for Shrine Hospital. He and his wife Jean built Cross’ Campground in 1971 and operated it for 37 years. Pictured, Cross rolls through town in style, waving to the crowds of supporters who came out to watch the parade on Saturday.
