SCHNEIDER RETURNS CHAIN OF OFFICE

Gov. Roy L. Schneider has returned the Governor's Chain of Office to the president of the 22nd Legislature, as required by V.I. law.
The chain, made of ribbon and metal and worn over the shoulder, is a symbol of the office of the V.I. governor. It is presented to the governor at inauguration to be worn on ceremonial occasions.
By law the chain must be returned to the president of the Legislature at least 48 hours prior to the inauguration of a new governor. The Senate president traditionally gives the outgoing governor a memento of his time in office — a gold shield with his name and dates of service as governor.
