STATE OF DELAWARE
WHEREAS, a group of interested citizens, led by Chief of Police J. J. Walling and James F. Godsey, both of New Castle, organized, in 1958, Delaware's first statewide Junior Fishing Rodeo; and
WHEREAS, the object of this organization is to provide healthful recreation for boys and girls and to bring them closer to the wonders of nature; and
WHEREAS, it is an established fact that boys and girls who make good use of their time strengthen the moral fibre of the community in which they live and build happier and more productive lives; and
WHEREAS, this year's Junior Fishing Rodeo promises to be even more widespread and more successful than the highly satisfactory Junior Fishing Rodeos held the past two years; now
THEREFORE, I, J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby declare Saturday, August 20, 1960, as
DELAWARE FISHING RODEO DAY
and urge all Delawareans--and particularly those under 16 years of age, for whose benefit the Delaware Junior Fishing Rodeo is staged--to fully support this most worthy civic undertaking.
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 fifth day of August 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-fifth.
J. CALEB BOGGS, Governor
GEORGE J. SCHULZ, Secretary of State
