CHAPTER 504

STATE OF DELAWARE

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT

PROCLAMATION

Whereas, in Delaware, we are signally blessed with one of the Nation's highest per capita incomes indicative of a thriving economy; and

Whereas, the skill, ingenuity and courage of the American worker and his determination to raise the standard of living for himself and his associates have been major factors in providing the high standards of living which we presently enjoy; and

Whereas, the generally good labor-management relationship in our State assures continuation of our economic growth and eventual attainment of new highs in employments and personal income; and

Whereas, it is fitting that the contributions of working men and women to the economy and welfare of our State should be suitably recognized; and

Whereas, the first Monday in September is traditionally set aside to honor the workers of America:

Now, Therefore, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim Monday, September 4, 1967, as

LABOR DAY

and urge the observance of this day by all our citizens with appropriate ceremonies and the display on all state and public buildings of the flags of the United States and the State of Delaware.

Further, I invite everyone to join me in saluting those whose daily work makes possible the abundant life we all enjoy.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., 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 29th day of August in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-seven, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-second.

(GREAT SEAL)
