(Franklin,GA) — In honor of Constitution Week, both Franklin Mayor, Joel Rogers and Heard County Commission Chairman, Lee Boone, signed proclamations proclaiming the week of September 17 through 23, Constitution Week in the City Of Franklin and Heard County.

The James Stewart Chapter, NSDAR, urge all citizens to remember the importance of our Constitution, the document that made us a free democracy.

To celebrate Constitution Week, the James Stewart Chapter, NSDAR, has a display at the Heard County Library in Franklin. Please stop by the week of September 17th or before the end of the month to celebrate one of the founding documents of our country.

Monday, September 17 begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The James Stewart Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution invites you to be part of the national celebration Bells Across America by ringing your bells.

All across America, people will be ringing their bells at 4:00 PM EST on September 17th so that the bells of freedom will be heard simultaneously from coast to coast.

The week-long commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances.

Our Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those unalienable rights to every American.

The United States of America functions as a Republic under the Constitution, which is the oldest document still in active use that outlines the self-government of a people.

This landmark idea that men had the inalienable right as individuals to be free and live their lives under their own governance was the impetus of the American Revolution. Today, the Constitution stands as an icon of freedom for people around the world.

Mark your calendars and ring your bells for the Constitution of the United States of America. Spread the Word! Let Freedom Ring!
