The Old Glory Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is supporting Williamson County Public Library’s efforts to celebrate Constitution Week in several ways this year.
Constitution Week is the commemoration of America’s most important document. Since the delegates met to sign the Constitution of the United States on Sept. 17, 1787, commemorations are celebrated annually during the week of Sept. 17-23.
Old Glory Chapter members accompanied WCPL Director Delores Greenwald to Williamson County Mayor Rogers Anderson’s presentation of a proclamation declaring the dates as “Constitution Week.” Old Glory also donated flags to WCPL that were placed in Constitution Week packets being distributed by the library.
Various Old Glory members volunteered to participate in story time at the library by reading different books related to the Constitution. Some of the books read were “America the Beautiful,” “We the People,” and “Grace for President.” Also, a reading of “Interview with Mrs. Tobias Lear” was performed. Tobias Lear served as personal secretary and later chief aide to George Washington. The script is an original by Old Glory member Vevia Martin.
Since gatherings are limited, Old Glory members Cheryl Maler, Joy Graham and Lisa Kenney were recorded on video by WC-TV reading different books.
This week, Tom Lawrence of WAKM AM-950 will interview Dolores Greenwald and Old Glory members about the celebration on the Hometown Radio Show.
