Ringing in Constitution Week
Local members of The Daughters of the American Revolution rung in Constitution Week at the Jefferson County Library last Saturday, Sept. 17. They held a ceremony with a flag raising as well as the ringing of bells to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution. The bells symbolize the ringing of the Liberty Bell. This year marks the 235th anniversary of the drafting of the constitution of the United States of America at the constitutional convention.
