REGION – If you hear church bells Tuesday, Sept. 17, 2019 at 4 p.m., it is to commemorate the signing of the U.S. Constitution in 1787 celebrating its 232nd anniversary. The tradition of celebrating the Constitution was started by the Daughters of the American Revolution who petitioned Congress to set aside a date. Constitution Day was signed into public law Aug. 2, 1956 by President Dwight D. Eisenhower and is observed every year on Sept. 17.
