Milestone: Daughters of the American Revolution celebrate Constitution Week

Members of Michael Trebert Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) joined with chapters nationwide to celebrate Constitution Week Sept. 17-23.

The celebration’s goals are threefold: to encourage the study of the historical events that led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787; to remind the public that the Constitution is the basis of America’s great heritage and the foundation for its way of life, and to emphasize U.S. citizens’ responsibility to protect, defend and preserve the U.S. Constitution.

To mark the occasion, local DAR members set up displays about the constitution in public libraries in Sequim, Port Angeles and Forks.

In addition, Michael Trebert Chapter sponsored a proclamation by the City of Port Angeles recognizing the significance of the Constitution in American civic life.

One of the largest patriotic women’s organizations in the world, DAR has more than 185,000 members in about 3,000 chapters across the country and several foreign countries. DAR members promote historic preservation, education and patriotism via commemorative events, scholarships and educational initiatives, citizenship programs, service to veterans, meaningful community service and more.

For more about about DAR and its mission, visit www.dar.org. Reach local chapter Vice-Regent Judy Tordini at 360-460-2346.
