McKendree University will help its students and visitors celebrate Constitution week beginning Tuesday.

The school's mascot, Bogey the Bearcat, will pass out booklets that include the entire text of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the Declaration of Independence along with interesting trivia and historical information across campus.

The National Society of Daughters of the American Revolution has asked for bells across the country to be rung in unison Tuesday in honor of the ratification of the U.S. Constitution. In cooperation with the Belleville NSDAR chapter, the Bothwell Chapel bell will ring for one full minute at 3 p.m.

Belleville News-Democrat is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news.
