They handed out pocket constitutions on the street. They demonstrated the operation of flint locks for us, as well as a spinning wheel. They had toy muskets for the kids to drill with. The parade started with a choir singing patriotic songs and a recreation of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Our trip to Nevada City was educational. This little town spends a lot of time and money on this event. They have been doing it for 49 years now! It's as patriotic as any Independence Day event, plus they reenact various historical events like the signing of the Declaration of Independence, and the minute men fighting the British. There is a wealth of information at each tent set up in the park, and all the participants dress in period correct clothing. They have replica flintlock muskets, a spinning wheel, and other vintage tools of the time. The person manning each tent was a wealth of historical knowledge. We didn't stay for the parade, which started today at 2pm. I have work tomorrow and the ride home is nearly a full day. I was, however, able to watch some of the parade on the internet. Ken and I were not able to speak directly with the city manager who plans this event, but we got her contact information and will have a talk with her. Ken also knows folks in an organization that does Civil War reenactments, and we will approach them to see if they are interested in doing Revolutionary War stuff as well.

The Constitution Day planning committee sound like a make to come together and come with a good event that can work for us all . Something we maybe able to do in every state and once a year for all to come together . This is my two pennies worth.

I think this would be a good event for the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars to get involved with.  Can I get more information on who, what and where in Polk County , NC this is going to happen?  Might be a good idea to have something going on Gibson street in front of the House of Flags maybe? I could probably  make that happen.

Thanks, Mike!  We had it made at Office Max for only $90!  Great investment for liberty! :)

In Ohio, Roger and I host the Fall SOLR State Meeting in conjunction with Constitution Day as a celebration of the U.S. Constitution.  Getting fellow Americans to learn about and to value this national document is one of our most important duties.  All of our state and community outreach events are centered around distribution and education for the Constitution, along with networking and growing SOLR.  This is something that we all should be passionate about!

We usually have a display board and hand out pocket constitutions at most of our events. Pictures help a lot so please take as many as you can Mike.
