CHAPTER 323 - STATE OF DELAWARE - EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, Armistice Day commemorating the end of the World War is the beginning of American Red Cross Roll Call for Membership;

AND, WHEREAS, the American Red Cross always stands in readiness to assist in great emergencies and in public health service, all most important to the well-being of our respective communities and the people of our State. Particularly at this time with suffering and need so much greater in the war-torn countries of Europe should we think of the good which may be accomplished by our financial support and aid;

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Richard C. McMullen, Governor of the State of Delaware, do proclaim November 11th to November 30th, 1939, as

ANNUAL ROLL CALL OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS

and urge the people of our State to think of the very necessary work that is done by this organization so sufficient support may be granted to carry on. By becoming a member of the American Red Cross you will show your confidence in their work and perform a service of great value to your community.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State to be affixed at Dover, this eighth day of November in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty-nine and of the Independence of the United States the one hundred and sixty-fourth.

(GREAT SEAL)

By the Governor:
