The first day of May each year is hereby designated as Law Day, U.S.A. It is set aside as a special day of celebration by the American people in appreciation of their liberties and the reaffirmation of their loyalty to the United States of America. May 1, 1958 was the first Law Day, set forth by Dwight Eisenhower. In addition to the fore mentioned reasons Law Day is also celebrated for the rededication of Americans and the ideals of equality and justice under law in their relations with each other as well as with other nations; and for the cultivation of that respect for law that is so vital to the democratic way of life.
This year’s event will be chaired by Mike Buckel – General Manager of Sonitrol Tri-County in Flint. The committee members will be the Honorable Judge David Newblatt, Joe Cozert – President of Teachout Security, and Carol Jaworski – Attorney at law.
