On the 235th anniversary of the Constitution of the United States, Mayor of Farmville David Whitus signed a proclamation that declared the week of Sept. 17 through Sept. 23 Constitution Week. The tradition of celebrating the U.S. Constitution was started in 1955 by the Daughters of the American Revolution.
