Children Day Proclamation

Dear Members and Friends of the Turkish American Community,

Wednesday marked the seventh issue of a proclamation announcing April 23rd as the Children’s Day in Greater Fort Lauderdale by Fort Lauderdale Mayor Mr. John P. “Jack” Seiler. The Proclamation was accepted by the President of Florida Turkish American Association, Aysegul Colak, at the City Commission meeting at Fort Lauderdale City Hall. Consul General of the Republic of Turkey in Miami, Mr. Ozgur Kivanc Altan and Marianne Winfield, Executive Director of Greater Fort Lauderdale Sister Cities International, delivered speeches recognizing the significance of the Children’s Day.

This event also included a visit by the winners of the Annual 5th grade Children’s Essay Contest for the topic “If I were Mayor”, at the Mayor’s office and the City Commission meeting. After leading the Pledge of Allegiance and receiving their prizes, winners were invited to run the Commission Session for a while, creating memorable moments for the children, their teachers and family.

This program and the Annual Essay Contest have been organized through the cooperation of Florida Turkish American Association (FTAA), Greater Fort Lauderdale Sister Cities International (GFLSCI) and Fort Lauderdale Office of the Mayor & City Commission.
