The United States has two important charters of freedom—the Declaration of Independence and the U.S. Constitution. While the Declaration of Independence is celebrated with a national holiday of fireworks, picnics and concerts, the signing of the Constitution is noted with less fanfare.
Sept. 17-23 is Constitution Week. Monday, Sept. 17 is the 231st anniversary of the signing of this very important charter of American freedom. The Constitution is the national framework of our government and the supreme law of the United States. The Constitution upholds and protects the freedoms central to our American way of life.
The Cricket Hill Chapter, NSDAR, invites you to visit the library this week of view the U.S. Constitution and patriotic display celebrating this important day in our history. Pick up a free personal pocket-size copy of the Constitution to read.
Ring the bells and fly your flag proudly for it is Constitution Week!
