While we know here in the office how important today is, it’s now a statewide recognized fact – Governor Deval Patrick declared today, April 29th to be the official “Consuls Day!” As Boston celebrates with global leaders to honor the Consular Corps, Carol Fulp and local leaders tonight at the 2011 Consuls Ball, the governor issued the following proclamation to make today a day to acknowledge the Consuls and their global leadership:
“Whereas: The Consular Corps of Boston serves as a vital connection between Massachusetts and over 50 countries of the world; and
Whereas: The members of the Consular Corps of Boston serve the citizens of Massachusetts and of their nations, and work to facilitate business and educational exchanges, as well as foster technology transfer, economic development, and international understanding; and
Whereas: The Consular Corps is a reflection of the diverse backgrounds of the citizens of Massachusetts, and the rich diversity of the many cultures of the world;
Therefore, I, Deval Patrick, Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, do hereby proclaim Friday, April 29, 2011 to be
in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.”
