Constitution Week Proclamation

Last week the Laclede County Commissioners received a request to proclaim September 17th through the 23rd as “Constitution Week”. The request was made by the Daughters of the American Revolution, a national group with a local chapter in Phillipsburg. Chapter Officer Sarah Stewart attended the Commission meeting Tuesday morning and spoke on what the “Daughters of the American Revolution” are, as well as why remembering the Constitution is so important.

After that, the Laclede County Commissioners did proclaim the week of September 17th- 23rd as Constitution week in Laclede County. Presiding Commissioner Randy Angst gave the address.

Afterward, Angst and the rest of the Commission thanked the Daughters of the American Revolution for “protecting our history and guarding our constitution”.
