DAR representatives Nancy Page and Karen Olsup have proclamtion signed for Constitution Week in Fannin County.

The Daughter’s of the American Revolution originally petitioned Congress in 1955 to declare September 17 as Constitution Day, with the week surrounding this day as Constitution week. In 1956, Dwight D. Eisenhower approved this recognition and America celebrated its first Constitution Day.

DAR plans on setting up a display in the Library recognizing this week, and allowing citizens to take a free copy of a pocket constitution home with them from the display.

They will also provide Fannin County students in the 10th grade a free copy of the pocket constitution. DAR member Karen Oslup said, “This way students would have a copy for their American History classes and Government classes.”

Approximately 500 copies will be given out to students of Fannin County.
