On the 231st anniversary of the Constitution of the United States, David Whitus, Mayor of Farmville, signs a proclamation that declares the week of Sept. 17-23 as Constitution Week. The tradition of celebrating the U.S. Constitution was started in 1955 by the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Members of the Judith Randolph-Longwood Chapter, NSDAR, observed the mayor signing.
