Constitution Week - Sept. 17 -23
All over America
In 1954 Daughters of American Revolution (DAR) petitioned U.S. Congress to pass a bill celebrating our Constitution. It was later passed and signed into law by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. We are asking churches to ring their bells and families to talk about this great document that was made by the people and for the people to protect our God given freedoms.
