The DAR is a non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patrio- tism, preserving American history and securing America's future through better education for children. The DAR members volunteer many hours annually to veterans, award scholarships and financial aid each year to students and support schools for the underprivileged. If interested, contact http://www.isdar.org/chapters/ jeanmariecardinell. Friday, Sept. 17, begins the national celebration of Constitution Week. The weeklong commemoration of America's most important document is one of our country's least known official observances. The Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom and to ensure those unalienable rights to every American. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). In 1955, the Daughters petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedi- cated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed  into Public Law #915 on August 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower. The aims of the celebration are to (1) emphasize citizens' responsibilities for protecting and defending the Constitution, preserving it for posterity; (2) inform the people that the Constitution is the basis for America's great heritage and the foundation for our way of life; and (3) encourage the study of the historical events which led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787. As part of the celebration, Chapter members encourage churches, schools, courthouses, city governments and individuals to ring bells on September 17, at 3 p.m. CDT, as a part of the national celebration of Constitution Week. They will be distributing over 100 bells in various places throughout the community as reminders to join in the celebration. Ring the bells...let them be heard simultaneously from coast to coast as we commemorate Consti- tution Week September 17-23. The event is designed to cause citizens to pause to reflect on the devotion of the men who wrote our Constitu- tion and the liberties we enjoy as a result. It serves to remind us of our commitment to the Constitution and our responsibilities as United States citizens. The Chapter is being led by members from all over Central Iowa and they will serve for the 2010-2012 years.
