Honors the Citizens of Grapevine
for their years of participation in Constitution Week, when churches, schools, businesses, city hall and citizens ring bells to celebrate bells across America, September 17, at 4:00 pm EST, which signifies the moment of ratification of our Constitution. At this moment we can hear the sound of freedom ring from coast to coast across our nation.
The City of Grapevine dedicates
Grapevine’s Liberty Bell
for the citizen’s use and purpose in the tradition of warning, proclamation, or celebration; Mayor William D. Tate joins the U.S. President and Texas Governor each year to proclaim Constitution Week, September 17-23. During Constitution Week it is each citizen’s responsibility to learn about their rights, freedoms and duties by studying the Constitution. Only then can we defend, protect and preserve it.
"I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its constitution; to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies."
