Tomorrow, September 17, our country celebrates its 224th birthday. Constitution Day commemorates the drafting of the U.S. Constitution and the 39 statesmen who signed it that day in 1787. This year, since the anniversary falls on a Saturday, the holiday is observed on Friday, September 16. It also recognizes all who, by coming of age or by naturalization, have become US citizens.
This month the group purchased material for each class, k-12 in the county for teacher resources. Monday, September 19, will be a special day as students become better educated on the Constitution of the United States.
