Are we a singular proclamation, New England?

Back in July of  ‘99, New Hampshire issued its proclamation for a day to recognize and honor our Gold Star Mothers.

TITLE I
THE STATE AND ITS GOVERNMENT

CHAPTER 4
POWERS OF THE GOVERNOR AND COUNCIL
IN CERTAIN CASES

Observances Proclaimed by Governor

Section 4:13-h

4:13-h Gold Star Mother’s Day. – The governor shall annually issue a proclamation calling for the proper observance of the first Sunday after Easter which shall be known as Gold Star Mother’s Day recognizing and honoring all mothers who have lost sons or daughters while on duty in the United States armed forces.

We would like to hear about similar proclamations from residents of the other New England states. Just leave us a comment! TIA.
