Constitution Week in Pleasanton

The Jose Maria Amador-Pleasanton chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution is sponsoring a poster contest for Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23, as well as setting up library displays in Pleasanton, Dublin and San Ramon and supplying mini copies of the U.S. Constitution to selected schools.

The DAR was instrumental in President Dwight Eisenhower signing Constitution Week into law in 1956 with the following three goals: to encourage studying the events that led to the framing of the Constitution in September 1787; to inform people that the Constitution is the basis of the American way of life; and to emphasize the responsibility of U.S. citizens to protect, defend and preserve the Constitution.
