FALLBROOK – Local members of the Daughters of the American Revolution, Monserate Chapter, encourage Americans to reflect on the United States Constitution during this month's annual observance in honor of this foundational document of national governance.

Constitution Week was initiated by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, a patriotic organization that encourages education and historic preservation in communities across America. Officially declared by President Eisenhower in 1956, Constitution Week is an annual commemoration of the living document that upholds and protects the freedoms central to our American way of life.

This year, the annual celebration begins Sept. 17 and continues through Sept. 23.

Although the coronavirus has limited opportunities for public gatherings and programs, local Daughters continue to support Constitution Week and remind the public of its importance. Throughout the community they are erecting displays, posting flyers and sponsoring municipal proclamations to raise awareness of the Constitution and to celebrate the 233rd anniversary of its signing.

The Monserate Chapter has 58 members who can trace their lineage back to people who brought America independence during the Revolutionary War in the 1770s and 1780s.

For further information, contact Monserate Chapter Madam Regent Suzanne Lemoine at 310-721-9612 or [email protected]
