Proclamations are provided by the Mayor’s Office as a service to Wilmington residents with the goal of honoring individuals/organizations, celebrating events of mass appeal, and increasing public awareness of noteworthy issues affecting our citizens.
These public service documents are strictly honorary and are not legally binding.
Proclamation requests are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and submission of this form does not guarantee issuance. The Mayor’s Office reserves the right to decline any request for a proclamation or issue a congratulatory/recognition letter instead. Due to editorial content and/or space limitations, we reserve the right to edit all submissions. No proclamation may be used as part of an advertisement or commercial promotion without express permission from the Mayor’s Office. Issuance of a proclamation does not constitute an endorsement of any individual, organization or entity by the Mayor.
