Council Proclaims September 17-23 as Constitution Week 

Posted by Melody Friday, August 26, 2016 10:27:00 AM

The Village Council has proclaimed the week September 17-23 as Constitution Week.  This year marks the 60th anniversary of Constitution Week in the US.  The first resolution to observe Constitution Week was made June 14, 1955, by Senator William F. Knowland of California.   Following passage of the resolution by both Houses of Congress, President Eisenhower issued his proclamation on August 19, 1955.

The first observance of Constitution Week was so successful that on January 5, 1956, Senator Knowland introduced a Senate Joint Resolution to have the President designate September 17-23 annually as Constitution Week.   The resolution was adopted on July 23 and signed into Public law 915 on August 2, 1956.

The Mayor and the Clerk of Marvin are getting locked up! Locked up for a good cause that is!

 

Joe Pollino and Melody Graham have been nominated to participate in the South Charlotte Lock-Up for MDA. They'll be hauled away on Thursday, August 25 at 9 a.m. in order to serve time while trying to raise funds to free individuals — and the families who love them — from the harmful effects of muscular dystrophy, ALS and related life-threatening diseases so they can live longer and grow stronger.

 

Did you know that muscular dystrophy, ALS and related disease take away everyday freedoms like walking, running, hugging and even breathing? This is why Joe and Melody are dedicating their time behind bars to help MDA fund ground-breaking research across diseases, provide critical care from the first day of diagnosis and empower families with services and support in hometowns across America.
