CHAPTER 296 - STATE OF DELAWARE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION
WHEREAS, each year from Armistice Day to Thanksgiving, the American Red Cross Roll Call is held, at which time an opportunity is given to everyone to become a member and by so doing to give the necessary financial support to the activities of the Red Cross; and,
WHEREAS, in addition to the need for service growing out of great emergencies and the ever present need for disaster relief, the Red Cross carries on programs of service to Public Health Nursing, Home Hygiene, First Aid, Life Saving and Junior Red Cross, all of which are essential to the welfare of hundreds of communities which have been so cruelly handicapped through several emergency years.
NOW, THEREFORE, I, C. D. Buck, Governor of the State of Delaware, do proclaim November 11-28, 1935, for the
ANNUAL ROLL CALL OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS
and wish to impress upon the people of the State of Delaware, the importance of continuing to support the activities of the Red Cross which are more urgent and more numerous than the present generations have previously experienced, and suggest that by becoming a member of such a splendid organization, you will not only show your confidence in its worthwhile efforts, but perform a service invaluable to your community.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, C. D. Buck, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed, at Dover, this first day of November, in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and thirty-five and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and sixtieth.
By the Governor:
C. D, BUCK.
