STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, for the thirty-fifth consecutive year, the farmers of our State will exhibit the fruits of their labor at the Harrington Fairgrounds; and
WHEREAS, each year our citizens are given an opportunity to see the prize crops grown in the state through these fine exhibits, in which our Granges, 4-H Clubs and like organizations join to enlighten us of their activities; and
WHEREAS, it is fitting that our citizens should be interested in, and have an opportunity to witness just what foodstuffs are raised in the First State, which helps to feed great metropolitan areas on the Atlantic Seaboard and elsewhere,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby set aside the week of July 26 through 31 as
FAIR WEEK IN DELAWARE
and I urge that as many of you as possible will take time to visit the Kent-Sussex County Fair during this period, and see for yourselves what a great asset we have in a farm population, which annually produces foodstuffs, the revenue from which represents one of our major incomes.
Let us at the same time give thanks for these men and women and their young folks, whose love of the soil and the things which it grows keeps them engaged in this much needed profession.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, J. Caleb Boggs, Governor of the State of Delaware, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the said State
(Great Seal) to be hereunto affixed at Dover, this Twenty-second day of July in the year of Our Lord One thousand nine hundred and fifty-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one-hundred and seventy-ninth.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor JOHN N. McDOWELL, Secretary of State
