Second Annual Citizenship & Constitution Day

Food, Fun, Facts & Prizes

In celebration of 223 years of freedom under the American Constitution, the Haysville Community Library will be celebrating its 2nd Annual Citizenship & Constitution Day* on Saturday September 18th from 10 am until 3 pm.

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.

Prizes will be awarded to participants in our Citizenship Contest – miniature Liberty Bells, Betsy Ross flags, replica Continental currency, and more.

Several City Boards, Commissions and Departments, as well as the Chamber of Commerce, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Daughters of the American Revolution, Haysville Pride, the Library Board and Friends of the Library, along with 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 in the process of making Haysville a better place, how to answer your 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 3 pm all participating organizations will have tables in the Community Room at the Haysville Community Library. Citizens are free to ask questions and learn about how their city works, and what they can do to help it work better.

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

* Two Hundred Twenty Three 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 day, Saturday, September 18th.
