NOW, THEREFORE I, Mr. Mercan by virtue of the authority vested in me as principal of the Harmony School of Business, do hereby proclaim the week of September 17 through 23 as
CONSTITUTION WEEK!!!
In 1955, the Daughters of the American Revolution petitioned Congress to set aside One week in September annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week.
The resolution was later approved by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The purpose of this annual celebration is to:
• Emphasize citizens’ responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution.
• Inform people that the Constitution is the basis for America’s great heritage and the foundation for our way of life.
• Encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787.
Happy Constitution Week!
