Proclamation - Longest Day of Smiles

Event: Longest Day of Smiles®    

Date:   June 19, 2022  

“Whereas Operation Smile Canada is a global medical charity providing free, life-changing surgeries and medical care to children born with cleft conditions around the world; and

Whereas every 3 minutes, a child is born with a cleft condition, and lack of access to safe, effective surgery means that easily treatable conditions like cleft lip and cleft palate can become fatal; and

Whereas Operation Smile Canada believes every child born with a cleft condition deserves exceptional surgical care; and

Whereas The Longest Day of SMILES® will unite Canadians from coast to coast to coast as they raise awareness and funds; and

Whereas on June 19, 2022, the citizens of Northumberland County are encouraged to learn more about how to support this worthy cause by visiting ; and

Whereas our community can help celebrate the Longest Day of SMILES® by posting #longestdayofsmiles on social media;

Be It Resolved That on behalf of Northumberland County Council, I, Warden Bob Crate do hereby proclaim the day of June 19, 2022 as The Longest Day of SMILES® in Northumberland County.”

Dated this 15th day of June, 2022


R.J. (Bob) Crate, Warden
