TRUSSVILLE — Constitution Week will be recognized in the city of Trussville Sept. 17 – 23.
The week of commemoration of the United States Constitution was first petitioned by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) in 1955. The observance has been recognized annually every year since 1956.
The Trussville City Council approved a proclamation recognizing the day, during its regular meeting on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2021.
“It is the privilege and duty of the American people to commemorate the two hundred and thirty-second anniversary of the drafting of the Constitution of the United States of America with appropriate ceremonies and activities,” the proclamation reads.
Citizens are urged to study the Constitution and reflect on privileges and rights during Constitution Week. The council was given gift bags containing bells to ring at 4 p.m. EST on Sept. 14, in remembrance of the signing of the law recognizing Constitution Week.
The proclamation passed unanimously, among councilors in attendance. Councilor Perry Cook was the only member not at the meeting.
