The Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) urges Americans to reflect on the United States Constitution during this month’s annual observance in honor of this foundational document of national governance. “There are two documents of paramount importance to American history: the Declaration of Independence, which forged our national identity, and the United States Constitution, which set forth the framework for the federal government that functions to this day,” said DAR President General Denise Doring VanBuren. “While Independence Day is a well-recognized and beloved national holiday, fewer people know about Constitution Week, an annual commemoration of the living document that upholds and protects the freedoms central to our American way of life.”
“We invite everyone to join us in celebrating this powerful document, which has enabled our democracy within a republic for more than two centuries,” VanBuren said. At the City Council Meeting on September 13, the Doctor Susan Anderson Chapter, NSDAR will receive a proclamation from the Arvada City Council. The chapter encourages the community to visit the Arvada Library and Standley Lake library to view the Constitution Week displays and learn about the document and the men who framed it. Also, on September 17, officially Constitution Day when the document was signed, the public is asked to ring a bell in celebration! If you can ring a church bell, fire station bell, school bell, or any handheld bell at 4 pm then ringing should be heard across America in the annual Bells Across America event celebrating the signing of the United States Constitution in Independence Hall, PA in 1787.
