Constitution Day at Copper Mountain College

    September 10, 2012

    In recognition of Constitution Day Copper Mountain College Cultural Education Enhancement Committee announces the celebration of our forefathers and the United States Constitution on September 17th, at 12:00 noon.  During this “brown bag” event, CMC students will be reciting selected passages of the Constitution to those in attendance at the outdoor amphitheater in Phase III on the main campus.  The event is free, open to the public, and powdered wigs are optional.

    The passage of an amendment by Senator Robert Byrd to the Omnibus spending bill of 2004 established this holiday, which was previously known as Citizenship Day.  Constitution Day is now a federally observed American holiday that is celebrated on the day the Constitution was signed in 1787.
