"DAR has been the fore- most advocate fbr the aware- ness, promotion and celebra- tion of Constitution Week," said DAR President General Ann Dillon. "This annual observance provides innumer- able opportunities fbr educa- tional initiatives and commu- nity outreach, two mission areas of crucial inaportance to the National Society's work. By fi~stering knowledge of and appreciation tbr the Constitution and the inalien- able rights it aflbrds to all Americans, DAR helps to keep alive the i temory of the men and women who secured our nation's independence, whose bravery and sacrifice made possible the liberties we enjoy today." "The framers created a Constitution that translated into law the ideals upon which our nation was built," said Dillon. "Their vision was so forward thinking that their words still guide us today.
