The City of Nolanville

Whereas, In year 2005 we commemorate the 90th anniversary of Armenian Genocide

Whereas, During the First World War, the Ottoman Empire in an effort to exterminate all traces of the Armenian population in Eastern Turkey massacred 1.5 million men, women, and children of Armenian ancestry

Whereas, The survivors of this massacre have maintained their identity through church, passing along from one generation to other knowledge, history and culture of this ancient civilization

Whereas, We join the citizens of Central Texas in opposing such atrocities,

Now, therefore I, mayor of city of Nolanville, do hereby proclaim June 5, 2005 as Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day

(signed) C.W. "Mike" Carter, Mayor City of Nolanville, Texas
