STATE OF DELAWARE
Whereas, it is appropriate we honor our fathers with a special day; and
Whereas, the theme for this American Holiday is "Juvenile Integrity Starts In The Home"; and
Whereas, the fathers of our land have made an essential contribution to this great democracy through their teaching and sturdy devotion to liberty and love of freedom; and
Whereas, we revere the father in the home as the cornerstone in the moulding of tomorrow's citizens; the building of good family life and the foundation of our future; and teacher of our young in the importance of good family life and the foundation of our future; and teacher of our young in the importance of good ethics, fair play, peace and brotherhood throughout the world;
Now, therefore, I, Charles L. Terry, Jr., Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim Sunday, June 16, 1968, as
FATHER'S AND GRANDFATHER'S DAY
and I call upon all the citizens of this State to observe it in worship, displaying the American Flag and otherwise commemorating the Father in the home, so that every day may have the blessings which flow from good fatherhood, good citizenship and a strong family life.
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 23rd day of May in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-eight, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-second.
CHARLES L. TERRY, JR., Governor
