On the 231st Anniversary of the U.S. Constitution, Mayor, David Whitus, signed a proclamation that declares the week of September 17th-23rd as Constitution Week. Members of the Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter, NSDAR, were witness to this signing.
The tradition of celebrating the U.S. Constitution was started in 1955 by the Daughters of the American Revolution. Public Law 915 guarantees the issuing of a proclamation each year by the President of the United States of America designating this specific week to honor the signing of the Constitution and all that was sacrificed to make it possible.
