Lakota Chapter regularly requests proclamations from the Cities of Auburn, Federal Way, and Kent to promote awareness of historic events, service, and the heritage of many demographic groups.
Constitution Week Proclamations
Acceptance of Proclamation by Sally Jarvis on behalf of Lakota Chapter:
It is my privilege as a member of the Lakota Chapter of the National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution to accept this proclamation for Constitution Week. The DAR, founded in 1890, is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America’s future through better education for children.
Our Constitution assures us a peaceful transfer of power at periodic intervals to leaders whom we, the people, have elected and sets out certain rights of the people. This document is the basis for our government and is an important part of the history of our country. The United States of America, that Great Experiment our forefathers began when they signed the Constitution in September 1787, endures, due in no small part, to the Constitution they wrote. It is only fitting that we take time to reflect on and honor what they did.
Thank you for this proclamation and thank you for your time.
