To commemorate the September 17, 1787 signing of the Constitution of the United States, Congress designated September 17 of each year as Constitution Day and Sept. 17 - Sept. 23 of each year as Constitution Week.
This September 17, 2016 is the 229th anniversary of our Constitution !
Each educational institution that receives Federal funds for a fiscal year is required to hold an educational program on the United States Constitution on September 17th (or at some point during Constitution Week), for it's students. Therefore, we would like to encourage our Junior Order councils to contact a school in your community and encourage that school to teach about our U.S. Constitution to their students during Constitution Week.
The National Council has pocket size copies of the U.S. Constitution for just $1. each. These could be presented to your community school, along with a Resolution from your council encouraging them to teach and uphold our U.S. Constitution.
Please contact the National Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to order some pocket constitutions. To be sure you receive your pocket constitutions in time, please order no later than Sept. 6th. You can place your order by e-mail, at email@example.com. Please, include your name and mailing address and your council's name and number.. Also your phone number in case we need to contact you.
(Dear Readers: please note, we can only sell to Jr. Order Members and Jr. Order Councils).
GO FORTH AND SPREAD THE NEWS OF OUR BELOVED ORDER'S PRINCIPLES. OUR NATION NEEDS US DURING THESE TROUBLED TIMES.
