In 1977 Maine’s legislature declared December 21 to be Chester Greenwood Day. The Acts proclaims:

“December 21st of each year shall be designated as Chester Greenwood Day and the Governor shall annually issue a proclamation inviting and urging the people of the state of Maine to observe this day in suitable places with appropriate ceremony and activity. Chester Greenwood Day shall commemorate and honor Chester Greenwood, whose inventive genius and native ability which contributed much to the enjoyment of Maine’s winter season, marked him as one of Maine’s outstanding citizens.”
