Constitution Day Celebration

11am-1pm

In Front of the Courtright Memorial Library (or under the overhang in case of rain)

Join us for a hands-on exploration of the Constitution! We’ll be writing out the parts of the Constitution that are of interest or important to us on brightly colored post-its and sticking them onto a board to create a community piece of art. This is your chance to make the Constitution your own. What speaks to you? What doesn’t? What do you want to celebrate or critique? What do you think matters most in this document that provides the framework for the United States? We’ll provide the supplies – you provide the insight! #FYS and #INST approved!
