JUNE 7, 2019

WHEREAS, since 1947 when Adult Crossing Guards were instituted in Port Arthur, Crossing Guards have provided safe crossing for school children walking to and from school; and

WHEREAS, due to dedication and a conscientious attitude to their work, they have maintained an outstanding safety record; and

WHEREAS, a day set aside to recognize all Crossing Guards and acknowledge the fine work they do crossing children safely in all sorts of weather would be beneficial to the Crossing Guards and it would re-enforce the community’s awareness.

NOW THEREFORE, I, Bill Mauro, Mayor of the City of Thunder Bay, do hereby proclaim, June 7, 2019 as “Crossing Guard Appreciation Day”, in the District of Thunder Bay.
