Official Proclamation of the City of Snoqualmie
Whereas, on September 2, 1913, Leo L Kelley, Concerned Citizen of Snoqualmie, was born in Wisconsin; and whereas, this momentous day should be remembered and held dear as the birth date of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, our Leprechaun, Uncle Sam, Cupid and a myriad of other characters of myth, legend and general amusement; and whereas, this momentous day should be remembered as the birth date of one of Snoqualmie's most influential residents: the builder of more homes in the City than any other person, a past member of the Snoqualmie City Council, an independent citizen activist for traffic safety and other important issues, a member of the Snoqualmie Eagles, the Kiwanis Club and the North Bend Moose Lodge, the head usher of Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church, a retired employee of Weyerhaeuser Corporation and distinguished member of the Lumber and Sawmill Workers Union for over 50 years, a former Grand Marshall of the Snoqualmie Days Parade, and the guy who got our stoplight at Meadowbrook Avenue and SR 202; and whereas, this momentous day should be remembered as the birth date of one who is representative of the ideal citizen, whose only concern is eternal vigilance of all that is good and kind and wise for all people; be it therefore proclaimed that September 2nd shall be accorded all the official recognition of a non-binding non-legal holiday for all citizens of Snoqualmie, and shall now and ever be known as Leo Kelley, Concerned Citizen Day by Order of the City Council of Snoqualmie, Washington.
