Abendschone Chapter, NSDAR was invited to participate in the Flag Day Program that was hosted by the Holiday Island Elk’s Lodge 1042.
On September 17, 2020 at 4:00 p.m., from sea to shining sea, bells rang throughout America in celebration of the United States Constitution! Abendschone Chapter participated in ringing the bells in honor of the completion of the 4,400 word document — our U.S. Constitution. Constitution Week is recognized September 17-23. This is the 233rd year of the signing of the US Constitution.
This document was so important to the Daughters of the American Revolution that in 1955, the National Society petitioned the United States Congress to approve an official annual celebration of our Constitution. The following year, on August 2, 1956, President Eisenhower declared that every September 17th thereafter would mark the beginning of a week-long celebration of this unique and innate founding document. We should be proud of DAR’s involvement in the creation of this nationwide observance – and we should be sure to celebrate it publicly to remind all Americans of its significance.Holly Blair, National Chair, Constitution Week Committee
