Whereas, the thirtieth annual Governor's Frog Jump Festival will be held Saturday, April 6, 1996, at Springfield in Orangeburg County; and
Whereas, this festival started in the 1960's at the State House in Columbia under Governor McNair and was later transferred to Springfield as the host site; and

Whereas, the Governor's Frog Jump Festival is one of the Palmetto State's most enduring festivals, as well as one of the most popular; and
Whereas, the entire community of Springfield is excited about hosting this thirtieth annual event, and the festival, as always, should prove to be great fun for everyone who attends. Now, therefore,
