September 17th, Happy Constitution Day!

Constitution Day is September 17th and Constitution Week is celebrated during September is celebrated during September 17 – 23rd.

Sunday, September 17 is Constitution Day across the United States. This federal holiday commemorates the signing of the U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. The Constitution created the structure of our government. It is the most important document in our country’s history and one of the most significant documents in world history. Why do we celebrate Constitution Day? We celebrate Constitution Day because that historic document, along with its Bill of Rights, created the first government that existed to serve its people. The Constitution was created by the people for the benefit of the people. We celebrate Constitution Day not just for the history behind it but for the role it serves in the lives of all Americans. The protections the Constitution upholds are just as important now as they were in 1787. Happy Constitution Day!
