DAR's "Constitution Day" Bell Ringing
Tuesday, September 17, 2019
Members of the Kisatchie chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will hold their “Constitution Day” bell ringing at the Beauregard Museum at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 17.
The public is invited to bring their bells and take part.
“Constitution Week” is observed annually Sept. 17-23. According to the national DAR organization’s website, the observance was started by members in 1955. Aims are 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; and to encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787.”
The Kisatchie chapter has been in DeRidder for over four decades. Members organized in November 1975.
