On Sunday, August 19, 2001, a group of fellow pro-polygamists
participated together via a number of means at a gathering in
Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA; they
all mutually agreed to a declaration
that from that day forward, the date of August 19, in each year
forward, would be the official and trademark day of
"Polygamy Day ®".
Hence, that day was "Polygamy Day ® 1", conveniently dated in the year 2001!
From this auspicious beginning, it was agreed that a new
non-profit corporation would have to be formed over the subsequent
year, with a culmination to be around the following year's "Polygamy Day ®"
And that's exactly what happened by the next year, August 19,
