Constitution Day (Sept. 17) To Be Observed With Bell-Ringing

September 12th, 2019

Constitution Day (Tuesday, Sept. 17) will be celebrated in Potter County with the Daughters of the American Revolution taking charge of the observance. Members of the Allegewi Chapter will hold a ceremony at the courthouse square at 3:45 pm, followed by a ringing of the courthouse bell at 4, recognizing the time of the ratification of the Constitution on Sept. 17, 1787. Local churches will also be sounding their bells. Communities, schools, churches, and individuals are encouraged to participate in the Bells Across America tribute to the Constitution. At today’s meeting, the Potter County Commissioners passed a resolution commending the Allegewi Chapter and designating Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week.
