DARKE COUNTY – Sept. 17 through 23 commemorates the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America.
To kick off Constitution Week, proclamations were given by the Darke County Commissioners and Greenville Mayor Willman.
Fort GreeneVille Chapter DAR invites everyone to visit the local libraries in Darke County for Constitution Week. Each of the six local libraries (Arcanum, New Madison, Greenville, Union City, Worch Memorial and Bradford) and the Garst Museum were gifted by DAR members with a 750-piece jigsaw puzzle of the US Constitution. Patrons are encouraged to visit and work on the puzzles at the designated locations. Also, there will be Constitution bookmarks for patrons while supplies last. A display cabinet featuring Constitution Week can be viewed at the Greenville Public Library.
DAR has been the foremost advocate for the awareness, promotion and celebration of Constitution Week. This annual observance provides innumerable opportunities for educational initiatives and community outreach, two mission areas of crucial importance to the national society’s work. By fostering knowledge of and appreciation for the Constitution and the inalienable rights it affords to all Americans, DAR helps to keep alive the memory of the men and women who secured the United States’ independence, whose bravery and sacrifice made possible the liberties Americans enjoy today.
