Monday night we had the privilege of attending the Rock Island City Council meeting where the Mayor of Rock Island, Mr. Dennis Pauley, presented us with the official proclamation of Wednesday, May 25th, as Boetje’s Mustard Day! We are proud to be part of the Quad City community and honored with the support that we have been given over the years. Read on for the official (and officially fun!) proclamation!
WHEREAS, Boetje’s Mustard has been produced in Rock Island since 1889 and has been a Quad City favorite since that year; and
WHEREAS, the World now recognizes Boetje’s Dutch Stone Ground Mustard as the Grand Champion of all Mustards in the World as selected at the 2016 Worldwide Mustard Competition; and
WHEREAS, this is the first time in the 22 year history of the Competition that a Whole Grain Mustard has earned the title of Grand Champion; and
WHEREAS, we’re very proud to call Boetje’s our very own but willing to share it with the World,
NOW, THEREFORE, I, Dennis E Pauley, Mayor of the City of Rock Island, proclaim May 25, 2016 as
BOETJE’S MUSTARD DAY
and I urge all residents to join me in recognizing and participating in this special observance by topping your favorite dish with Boetje’s Mustard on this day.
