Food, Fun & Facts

In celebration of 222 years of freedom under the American Constitution, the Haysville Community Library will be celebrating Constitution Day, and holding a special Citizenship and Constitution Day on Saturday September 19th.

Food and refreshments will be served for participating adults and accompanied children. Free copies of the Constitution and Declaration of Independence will be available for all who attend or visit the library. All City Boards, Commissions and Departments, as well as the Chamber of Commerce, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Library Board and Friends of the Library, and many other civic organizations will have representatives and/or information freely available to members of the public.

If you’ve ever wanted to know how you can participate to make Haysville a better place, how you can find answers to questions about city government, how you and your neighbors can act to improve your lives – this is the place to be.

From 10 am until 2 pm, all participating city boards, commissions and departments as well as a number of civic organizations will have tables in the Community Room at the new Haysville Community Library. Citizens are free to ask questions and learn about how their city works, and how they can help it to work better for them.

Free hamburgers and hotdogs will be provided for participating adults and accompanied children.

Throughout the month of September, the Library also has on display a number of vibrant images from America’s past and present. Our Picturing America collection brings to life the story of our nation through display of high-quality color reproductions of masterpieces of American art from the National Endowment for the Humanities (For more details, see our earlier post on Picturing America).

For more information on all the city’s boards, commissions and departments, visit the City of Hayville’s official website.

* Two Hundred Twenty Two years ago this coming September 17th, the US Constitution was formally adopted by the Constitutional Convention meeting in Philadelphia. On the following June 21st, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the document, and the Constitution became the supreme law of the land. We’ll be celebrating Constitution Day on the following Saturday, September 19th.
