3 - Issue 10
The city of St. Louis, (pop. 350,000) nestled in the heart of America, in the state of Missouri, gave the world its first skyscraper, and served the world’s first ice-cream cone. The famous poet T.S. Eliot and the playwright Tennessee Williams, among many others, are well-known residents of this “Gateway to the West” city.
The city has already come to your notice, as last issue we covered the meticulously planned medical camp that was held in June and which received much praise from the city authorities. If you want to read it again, go here.
Now St. Louis has heralded another first for the world. This is because its Mayor, Mr. Francis G. Slay, has proclaimed September 11th to be celebrated as Sri Sathya Sai Baba Day in the city.
How did this come about?
The Sai Organisation was holding a Public Meeting on that day to inform those attending about Swami, His Life and Mission. The Mayor had been invited, but then gave his apologies as he was out of town. However, he conveyed to the Sai Organistion that from thereafter Sri Sathya Sai Baba Day would be held every year in St Louis, in recognition of Swami’s humanitarian work.
An official Proclamation was made by the Mayor to honour this City Day celebration. Please read the Proclamation; it is certainly a most respectful homage to our Beloved Lord.
