Commissioners Proclaim Week to Honor U.S. Constitution
The U.S. Constitution is acknowledged as the guardian of freedom and liberty as well as an embodiment of the principles of government in a Republic dedicated to rule by law. With that as a backdrop the Commissioners of St. Mary's County paid honor to the Constitution with a proclamation prior to their weekly business meeting.
September 17, 2015 marks the two hundred twenty-eighth anniversary of the framing of the Constitution of the United States of America by the Constitutional Convention. Daughters of the American Revolution, Major William Thomas Chapter joined commissioners to mark the anniversary and remember the enduring importance the Constitution holds in our country.
"It is fitting and proper to accord official recognition to this magnificent document and its memorable anniversary," said Commissioner Todd Morgan (4th District). "As such Public Law guarantees the issuing of a Proclamation recognizing the week of September 17 through 23 as Constitution Week."
County Commissioners then urged all citizens to study the Constitution, and reflect on the privilege of being an American with all the rights and responsibilities which that privilege involves.
