WHEREAS, we have entered a decade which will give the citizens of our State--and our country--more leisure time than has ever before been enjoyed by so many people; and

WHEREAS, the National Recreation Association points out that such leisure, used wisely, can make every citizen more valuable to himself as well as to his community because as he expands his horizon of interests he expands his usefulness to society; and

WHEREAS, the State of Delaware, with its many and varied recreation facilities, offers virtually unexcelled opportunities for cultural and spiritual refreshment as well as relaxation; and

WHEREAS, Delawareans are currently extending an invitation to our friends in other areas to "See the First State First--in '60" and to share the enjoyment of seeing historic, scenic Delaware; now,

THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the month of June, 1960 as


and urge the citizens of Delaware and the many guests who visit our hospitable state to make the wisest possible use of their leisure time by visiting and enjoying the varied recreation facilities available here, and to support our many recreation programs so that all of us may truly "find new worlds through recreation".

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 twenty-fourth day of May in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and sixty and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and eighty-fourth.


J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
