DAR ringing in the Constitution

On Wednesday, Sept. 12, the El Dorado Chapter of The Daughters of the American Revolution will host a celebration of the 225th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution.

The bells will ring at 11:45 a.m. at the El Dorado County Main Library, 345 Fair Lane in Placerville. Everyone is invited to experience a piece of history withperiod costumes, a proclamation of Placerville by Mayor Mark Acuna, and the signing of a large constitution of which everyone will have a chance to sign.

Attendees will also receive a constitution booklet, and all signers of the constitution will receive a sticker declaring, “I signed the Constitution.” The display of this constitution will remain up and available to sign, in the library throughout the week.

The Constitution Preamble, “We the People…,” draws us into this magnificent document that is the outline of our American way of life and personal freedoms. The Constitution not only includes how the government will operate, but also all the amendments that detail rights and freedoms as American citizens.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote patriotism, preserve American history, and support better education for our nation’s children. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War. With more than 165,000 members in approximately 3,000 chapters worldwide, DAR is one of the world’s largest and most active service organizations.
