Continuing a long local tradition, the Don José Verdugo Chapter, National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution installed displays in Foothills area public libraries last month to celebrate U.S. Constitution Week.
The patriotic exhibits were put up at the La Cañada Flintridge, Montrose and La Crescenta libraries throughout September. Constitution Week, which began Sept. 17, has been marked by the National DAR since 1955.
"These displays … are to commemorate one of America's most important documents, yet it is one of our country's least known official observances," said Don José Verdugo Chapter Regent Caroline Craven, who noted that members Suzanne Stanfill and Connie Cianciarulo "worked hard to bring the Constitution to the forefront in these displays."
