'Constitution Week' proclaimed in Marshall

Friday, September 15, 2017
Raylene Cornine, with the Marshall Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution, listens as Marshall Mayor Mark Gooden proclaims Sept. 17-23 as “Constitution Week.” Sept. 17 marks the 230th anniversary of the framing of the U.S. Constitution by the Constitutional Convention and “it is fitting and proper to accord official recognition to this magnificent document and its memorable anniversary,” the proclamation states. By proclaiming “Constitution Week” in the city of Marshall, citizens are asked to reaffirm the ideals the framers of the Constitution had by protecting the freedoms guaranteed to us.
