Constitution Day Festivities

Henderson Library, Financial Aid, Student Media,

the Student Government Association and the Dean of Students

have teamed up this year for an exciting and informative celebration of Constitution Day

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

2:00-4:00 p.m.

In the Russell Union Commons

Join patriotic Americans around the country as we celebrate our Constitutional rights. Read the Preamble to the Constitution at 2pm, as others around the country congregate to do the same thing. Get your own Pocket Guide to the Constitution, as a handy reminder of those rights. Get prepared for the November election with information about registering to vote and voting from Bulloch County’s Deputy Registrar, Shontay Jones. If you haven’t registered already, now is the time! We will have a voter registration drive and you can ask questions of the Deputy Registrar. Join us in a discussion of the issues surrounding the creation of the Presidency with Dr. Patrick Novotny. See the winners of the “What Does the Constitution Mean to You?” contest and turn in your correct and complete George Anne crossword puzzle for a chance to win a $30 gas card.
