To whom was referred a Concurrent Resolution (H. 4848), to designate 1992 as the year of Palmetto Discovery and October 12, 1992, etc., respectfully
Has polled the Concurrent Resolution out of Committee without report.
TO DESIGNATE 1992 AS THE YEAR OF PALMETTO DISCOVERY AND OCTOBER 12, 1992, AS PALMETTO DISCOVERY '92 DAY TO BE RECOGNIZED WITH APPROPRIATE CELEBRATIONS THROUGHOUT SOUTH CAROLINA.
Whereas, Columbus Day is celebrated October 12, 1992, in South Carolina; and
Whereas, the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, Santee Cooper, the South Carolina State Library, and the Palmetto Project joined together to develop and implement a special year-long celebration of this important event and of the 500th anniversary of the Discovery of America by Christopher Columbus; and
Whereas, Palmetto Discovery '92 is our state's wonderful way of commemorating this momentous event; and
Whereas, South Carolina is a unique and special place which should be discovered by South Carolinians as well as those who live outside our fine State; and
Whereas, the people in each of the forty-six counties in South Carolina have organized to celebrate the heritage of their county; and
Whereas, each county has its own projects to record the special things about that county; and
Whereas, the Palmetto Discovery '92 sites have been designated as official locations that represent the best each county has to offer; and
Whereas, Palmetto Passports, to enhance the discovery of our State, are being distributed through local libraries as the official passport for the discovery celebration in South Carolina; and
Whereas, Palmetto Pride Community Projects are being undertaken to preserve permanently some aspects of local history and heritage and to improve the community; and
Whereas, the Big Click, a discovery photo album, presents a day in the life of South Carolina highlighting the people, places, and things that make our State special; and
Whereas, the Palmetto Discovery '92 celebration event will be held in every county to commemorate a date or activity in the official Discovery celebration for the county. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly designate 1992 as the Year of Palmetto Discovery and October 12, 1992, as Palmetto Discovery '92 Day to be recognized with appropriate celebrations throughout South Carolina.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, Santee Cooper, the South Carolina State Library, and the Palmetto Project.
