STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, the U. S. Coast Guard and the Coast Guard Auxiliary have declared the week of June 27 through July 5 as National Safe Boating Week; and
WHEREAS, this week is being set aside to call the attention of pleasure boatmen to the need for knowing and observing the basic rules of safe boating and for maintaining their craft in good mechanical condition; and
WHEREAS, the growing popularity of boating as one of America's favorite forms of family recreation makes it necessary for every boatman to use common sense and courtesy afloat to make boating one of the safest of all outdoor activities; now,
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim June 27 through July 5, 1959, as
SAFE BOATING WEEK IN DELAWARE
and urge all boat owners to cooperate in making this week, and every week of the boating season, remembered for its pleasure and not its tragedy. Further, I hope that boatmen, realizing their responsibilities to themselves, their families and fellow boat owners, will accept the assistance and guidance that is available from the U. S. Coast Guard and its Auxiliary.
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 to be hereunto affixed at Dover this seventeenth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and fifty-nine and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-third.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
GEORGE J. SCHULZ, Secretary of State
