Received an email from the Governor's office with the proclamation attached. He had likewise recognized EC in April 2011 so he was familiar with the proclamation.

For those considering contacting their governor, I contacted them by email through their email contact address on the governor's homepage. I received an immediate response. It wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.

There may be more one should do, but, at least, this is a step. BMGky

Are we requesting for the month of April for every year or just April of this year???
I sent a request to our Governor here in Indiana.

I think it is done for each year, but, hey, I don't know. I know that he did last year and that's the reason I referenced it...thought it would save his staff having to develop a new one.

I think this is a fairly new movement to increase awareness and is growing in state response each year, but, again, I don't know for sure.

Let me know if you find out anything differently.
