Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to designate forthwith a flagpole in the city of Lawrence, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court assembled, and by the authority of the same, as follows:
The flagpole in front of the visitors center at Lawrence heritage state park in the city of Lawrence shall be designated and known as the Mary L. Girouard flagpole, in honor of Mary L. Girouard, an active supporter of the park and founder of the Friends of Lawrence heritage state park. The department of conservation and recreation shall erect and maintain a suitable marker bearing that designation in compliance with the standards of the department.
Approved August 20, 2009.
