Official Proclamation Document

Now is the time to get rolling with SENIOR Q MONTH!

Have you contacted your governor, mayor, and President Bush yet about proclaiming October as Senior Q Month? Iowa Governor Thomas Vilsack has already signed the first official Senior Q Month proclamation in history, thanks to Mike Tucker of Hawgeyes and the Iowa Barbecue Society. Get your state on board! You can adapt the generic proclamation below for your state, county, city or nation. It is also posted on the Senior Q Month web pages. Put "senior q month" in your search engine to get the link. Governors require advance notice and a draft resolution up to 45 days out. Most state guidelines are online. Go for it before the frost is on the pumpkin! By then it's too late.
