Huntsville City Council Issues Bicentenary Proclamation

In an uplifting and joyful atmosphere, the Huntsville City Council Thursday evening issued a Proclamation honoring the Bicentenary of the Birth of Bahá’u’lláh.

The Proclamation, signed jointly by the City Council and the Mayor of Huntsville, was presented in a regular public session to a nearly packed council chamber and broadcast live on the city television network.

The council president and members of the council took time before the meeting to personally greet the contingent of Bahá’ís supporting the proclamation presentation.

The council session began with the reading of a prayer for humanity by Alicia Tyson as the invocation.  The proclamation was read in its entirety by Councilman Bill Kling, who co-sponsored it with Council President Jennie Robinson.

Tim Tyson accepted the Proclamation for the Bahá’í Community and thanked the Council for its support.

Of special significance was the radiant diversity of the council, the city staff supporting the council session, and the audience which included a number of youth and junior youth from the greater Huntsville community who received special recognition by the City for their service.
