Florida cities laud families

OVIEDO, FLA. — Several cities in Seminole County in Florida declared November 2006 the "Month of the Family," thanks in part to the efforts of a stake director of public affairs for the Church. The cities of Longwood, Lake Mary, Altamonte Springs, Casselberry, Winter Springs, Oviedo and Sanford all issued proclamations on the family after Lynn Whitcom, Orlando stake public affairs director, contacted the mayors and proposed the initiative.

"Upon the conclusion of the ceremony in Oviedo, a loud applause arose from the audience," wrote Michelle Badger, Orlando stake media relations, to the Church News. "The mayor then asked if all of the children would then come and stand with him for pictures ... by local media."
