On Sept. 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign their creation, what is now the oldest written and actively used constitution in the world.
More than two centuries after the signing of the Constitution, Americans celebrate National Constitution Week, Sept. 17-23, dedicated to honoring and explaining the Constitution and its role in keeping our nation great.
Farm Bureau urges Texans to give due notice this week. It is of great importance that all citizens fully understand the provisions and the principles of the Constitution so that it can be supported, preserved and defended.
Wayne Wolf, president
DeWitt County Farm Bureau
