Local DAR chapter recognizes upcoming Constitution Week
Placeholder Image
On Aug. 2, 1956, President Dwight D. Eisenhower signed Constitution Week into law after the resolution had been adopted by the U.S. Congress. One year prior, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) petitioned Congress to observe the week of Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week. The purposes of Constitution Week are to inform citizens that the constitution is the basis for America’s heritage and the foundation for it’s way of life; encourage the study of the historical events that led to the framing of the Constitution and to emphasize citizen’s responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution.
