Event Details

The display by the local Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.) society and the Jean Marie Cardinell DAR Chapter continues the commitment to encourage study, celebrate, inspire and educate the public about this founding document.  The Constitution is a living document that assures each citizen the freedoms that Americans cherish and appreciate, while promoting the ideals that our ancestors fought valiantly to give their descendants.

The U.S. Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787.  In 1955, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) petitioned Congress for a week of observance known as Constitution Week to be observed annually, September 17-23.  It was signed into law by President Eisenhower in 1956.  President Bush officially declared the inception of Constitution Week in 2002.
