Letter to the editor: Celebrate Constitution

To the editor:

The Betty Washington Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution encourage everyone to observe Constitution Week, today through Sept. 23. That week was signed into law by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1956. Her urged everyone to give “solemn and grateful thought to that eventful week in September, 1787, when our Constitution was signed and delivered to the Continental Congress.” This was the foundation for the birth of a new nation.

The DAR is committed to spreading an appreciation for our Constitution. Celebrate and read the Constitution. It is 234 years old, a cause for celebration.

Mary Burchill,
