Local DAR chapter observes Constitution Week

The Martha Devotion Huntington chapter will join the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution in observing Constitution Week from Sept. 17-23 with a library display at the Bay Village Branch Library.

Help us celebrate the 229th birthday of the United States Constitution by taking a moment to read some of the interesting facts, plus a quiz about Constitution trivia. There will also be a list of all the Constitutional Amendments, beginning with the Bill of Rights, encompassing Articles 1-10.

The Chapter has sponsored this display for 10 years. The Constitution was signed into being on Sept. 17, 1787, replacing the Articles of Confederation. This year, we have requested all the churches in Bay Village to ring their bells at noon on Saturday, Sept. 17, in observance of the signing.

In an election year, learning about the Constitution becomes more relevant than in other years. All DAR chapters are dedicated to historic preservation, education and patriotism. This week is really as important as Independence Day.

We participate in various events in the community throughout the year, including the Memorial Day Parade, Cahoon in June and Stay in Bay Days, during the 4th of July holiday.

If you wish to learn more about our chapter, contact Doris Gorgas at 440-835-0794 or lablady76@wowway.com.
