Official declaration
Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Clara, California

Whereas March 21, 1997 people of Iranian ancestry throughout the valley will celebrate the first day of Spring as Nowruz -- the beginning of the Iranian New Year 1376; and

Whereas Iranians are an integral part of the Valley's cultural, social and economic life; and

Whereas Iranians have proved themselves to be an asset to our community and life holding esteemed professional positions; and

Whereas we recognize the Iranian community's historic achivements throughout time, and support their search for freedom and peace while we join them and recognize this special holiday.

Now, therefore be it resolved, that the Board of Supervisors of the County of Santa Clara do hereby proclaim March 21, 1997 as "Iranian Heritage Day" in recognition of the contributions of the Iranian community to our Valley. And we send our best wishes for a most enjoyable Nowruz holiday.
