                      A Proclamation
          Declaring “Women’s History Month” in Alachua County

Whereas,     in countless ways, American women of every background have
             made historic contributions to the establishment, growth and
             perpetuation of our nation; and

Whereas,     American women have made valuable contributions to the
             health, education and welfare of our nation; and

Whereas,     American women served as leaders in every major progressive
             social change movement, including the abolitionist movement,
             the emancipation movement, the labor movement, the civil rights
             movement, the peace movement and the environmental
             protection movement, all the while pursuing their own right of
             suffrage and equal opportunity; and

Whereas,     the participation of American women in these events has
             changed the course of history for the betterment of us all, and is
             esteemed and valued by our community.

Now, therefore, through the authority vested in me by the Board of
County Commissioners of Alachua County, Florida, I do hereby proclaim
the month of March as “Women’s History Month” in Alachua County,

Duly Proclaimed this 22nd day of February, 2005.
