History of South Carolina Governor's Proclamations Issued for April being Parkinson's Awareness Month

Each April, the majority of the states in our nation have Governor's Parkinson's Awareness Proclamation signing or presentation ceremonies. South Carolina has had Proclamations issued by our state Governors in the following years

No Proclamations issued prior to 2006
2006 = Yes Proclamation issued
2007 = Yes Proclamation issued
2008 = No Proclamation issued
2009 = Yes Proclamation issued with a Lt. Governor's ceremony

The SC State House Governor's Proclamation ceremonies with our elected officials have been a major way for the SC Parkinson's community to help create Parkinson's awareness among the citizens of our state. SC Governor's Proclamation events are another opportunity for South Carolina to join with the other US states in our nation, and with other nations to publicly celebrate April as "Parkinson's Awareness Month".
