The Roger Sherman Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, which serves the greater New Milford area, has issued a reminder about Constitution Week Awareness, which runs Sept. 17-23.

The weeklong commemoration of America’s most important document is one of our country’s least known official observances.

The Constitution stands as a testament to the tenacity of Americans throughout history to maintain their liberties and freedom, and to ensure those inalienable rights to every American.

The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started many years ago by the Daughters of the American Revolution.
