Celebrate the Constitutions of the United States of America

‘Ringing of the Bells’ marks the beginning of Constitution Week

Celebrate the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America with theá “Ringing of the Bells” in conjunction with “Bells Across America,” which marks the beginning of Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23.

The Constitution of the United States of America was signed on Sept. 17, 1787.

Local churches, courthouses, veteran homes, city governments, city and county employees, 4-H Clubs, Boy and Girl Scouts, and other clubs such as Rotary and Mason members, individuals, schools, police stations, and firehouses will join other villages, towns and cities across the USA by ringing their bells simultaneously from coast to coast for two minutes commemorating the signing of the Constitution.

If you, as an individual would like to take part in the observation but do not own bells, use the bell ringer on your cell phone! Be creative, have fun and participate!

Chief Senachwine Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution would like to invite all churches, schools, courthouses, fire houses, veterans’ homes, city governments and individuals to ring bells on Thursday, Sept. 17.

Ringing the bells at 4 p.m. EST in all time zones is encouraged, so that they are heard simultaneously from coast to coast. By ringing bells at 3 p.m. Central time, you are celebrating the American Constitution, along with millions of other Americans, from coast to coast.
