Wyoming’s Historic Thanksgiving Proclamations



Wyoming Governor B.B. Brooks, designated November 25, 1909 as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise throughout the State.

Part of this proclamation reads:

“The year now drawing to a peaceful close has been one of unparalleled prosperity. Law and order prevailed. Providence has smiled upon us with abundant range and bountiful harvest, and has withheld pestilence and disaster. Let us express our gratitude fittingly, not forgetting the needy and afflicted, whose cares can be lightened and day brightened by generous contributions from our
own abundance.”

Happy Thanksgiving from Wyoming’s libraries!
