This committee's goal is to bring
the U.S. Constitution and the importance of its preservation to the
attention of the general public. Each year the chapter invites the public
to join them in a patriotic celebration in the courtroom of the historic
Tishomingo County courthouse. Local
Cub, Boy, and Girl scouts, the high
school choir, and other patriotic service groups are invited to
participate in the event.
A proclamation is secured from the Mayor
of Iuka. Articles are placed in local papers and materials are provided to
those attending the celebration on the Constitution. Constitution displays
are placed in the Tishomingo County Archives & History Museum and the Iuka
Public Library. A Constitution Fact is given at chapter meetings.
In the Shady Grove Cemetery
in historic Tishomingo County lie the graves of the heroes who fought for
the Southern cause. The trenches where the hastily buried dead lie in all
indifference to war blast or signal call are plainly visible.
Our chapter honors these soldiers
with American flags.
The NSDAR inherently stands for adequate defense of the nation. Further, it strives to encourage the preservation of our priceless heritage, protection of the Constitution and the free enterprise system, and the upholding of the precepts and ideals of a Democracy in a Republic.
The chapter reports on National Defense at each chapter
meeting. A National Defense Program is planned every two years.
The committee's purpose is to encourage a strong patriotic feeling and respect for the flag. An important objective is to educate children and adults in the correct use and proper display of the flag in accordance with the Flag Code adopted by Congress.
The chapter began celebrating Flag Day with a flag
retirement ceremony in 2008 at the old Tishomingo County Courthouse. We present flag facts at all public events.
