Day 2- July 17th

This morning we had our first breakfast in Camden at the local Subway shop. We were delighted to see our favorite sandwich artist. We then proceeded to the Chamber of Commerce where we met up with our team members from the local high schools. First was a long anticipated video conference call with the executives from the bamboo company we are working with. Leading up to our trip to Camden we had researched a lot of information and many questions arose that only members from the Company could answer. Discussing the company and the project with the executives gave us a much better understanding of the process in which the company will produce and manufacture bamboo, we were very impressed  with the level of commitment that the Company has for the well-being of the community in which it will conduct its operations.

Later in the evening, we  were once again invited to have dinner with Lathrop and Garland Smith at their historic, Antebellum home. Dinner consisted of Spaghetti with Bolognese sauce as the main course and ice cream as dessert. We had a long and interesting conversation about potential bamboo planting in Camden.
