Proclamations Bring Recognition

A very important duty of the office of Mayor of St. Augustine is to carry out the City’s ceremonial duties whether it is cutting ribbons for new facilities, welcoming visiting conventions, or meeting with officials when they visit the City.

One ceremonial duty that means a great deal to the residents of our community is the issuance of proclamations by the Mayor.

A proclamation is simply a way for the Mayor, and the Commission as a whole, to bring much deserved recognition to individuals or organizations that are providing outstanding services or that have contributed a great deal to the betterment of our community.

Recipients and the subjects of proclamations are as diverse as the City of St. Augustine. Since taking office last December, Mayor Gardner has issued proclamations that recognized the St. Augustine High School for their outstanding showing on the football field and the installation of the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine’s new pipe organ, the life long contributions of Katherine Twine and Kenneth Beeson, as well as the 130th anniversary of both the St. Augustine Yacht Club and the St. Paul AME Church.

While not carrying the weight of law or creating a forum for great debate, the issuance of proclamations is a very important part of being a community. In many ways, it is simply a way, in an official capacity, to say thank you to those who do so much for others.
