Constitution Week

The Del Norte Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is encouraging local residents to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution this week.

Del Norte Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution is encouraging every American to celebrate Constitution Week from September 17 – 23, commemorating the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America.   

This celebration of Constitution Week was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution.  In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17 – 23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week.  The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The aims of the Constitution Week celebration are:

 1) Emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution.

2)  Inform people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for  

     our way of life.     

3)  Encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing and signing of the Constitution  

     on September 17, 1787.

For further information on Constitution Week, check the National DAR website at nsdar.org, or locally, contact Regent Cori Higgins at 954-7103.

DAR is a women’s service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, patriotism and honoring the patriots of the Revolutionary War.

Does the Constitution say you can die and infect others around you by refusing the Covid vaccine?
