STATE OF DELAWARE
Whereas, the season of the year has arrived in which we have the opportunity to enjoy many forms of outdoor recreation and physical activity; and
Whereas, it is essential that all the people in Delaware be aware of the need to be physically fit; and
Whereas, the Delaware Physical Fitness Committee has formulated programs throughout the year which encourage the maintenance of physical fitness for all ages and both sexes, and advises that increased attention be given to physical fitness at this time;
Now, therefore, I, Russell W. Peterson, Governor of the State of Delaware, do hereby proclaim the week of May 26, 1969, as
PHYSICAL FITNESS WEEK
and challenge all residents of Delaware to join with all others in activities that sustain physical fitness throughout the year.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I, Russell W. Peterson, 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 15th day of May in the year of our Lord, one thousand nine hundred and sixty-nine, and of the Independence of the United States of America, the one hundred and ninety-third.
RUSSELL W. PETERSON, Governor
