Merny Erby, regent of the local William Taylor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), is shown here with Charles R. Slayton, chairman of the Lunenburg County Board of Supervisors, as he signs a resolution for the celebration of Constitution Week, observed annually to commemorate the signing of the United States Constitution Sept. 17, 1787. During the week of Sept. 17-23, citizens of the United States are called upon to familiarize themselves with this national document that sets forth the framework of the government of the United States. Americans can take pride that theirs is the oldest constitution still in active use in the world today. Erby’s shirt reads, “We the People,” the opening words of the Preamble to the Constitution which summarizes how this document is designed to protect the rights of citizens of the United States.
