An all-day seminar on our U.S. Constitution will be offered Saturday, March 9, in Davis. Titled “The Making of America: The Founders’ Principles of Liberty and the Meaning of the Constitution,” the program material is provided by the National Center for Constitutional Studies.

Presented in an accessible manner, the program looks at the context in which the document was written and examines the participants and their political beliefs and influences.

This event is presented by the Davis women’s group, “We the People — Davis,” whose focus is educational programs and policy forums on the U.S. Constitution and related topics. Facilities underwriting is provided by the Hallmark Inn. Attendees of any political party affiliation (or no party affiliation) of high school age and older are welcome.

The organization that developed the discussion guide and approach for this seminar, NCCS, is a nonprofit educational foundation created to teach the U.S. Constitution in the tradition of America’s founding fathers. Founded in 1971, NCCS has taught thousands of families throughout America the original principles and ideas drafted more than two centuries ago.

About the Constitution, Abraham Lincoln stated “Don’t interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained for it is the only safeguard of our liberties.”

The presenter for the Davis seminar is Stuart Dodge. He has served as an instructor on the Constitution at all levels and participated in multiple get-out-the-vote efforts in cities throughout California from San Diego to Chico.

NCCS is also the publisher of “The 5000 Year Leap: The Miracle That Changed the World,” a history of the early United States Constitution appropriate for adults, students and elected officials. To date, it has sold nearly a million copies.

Doors at the Sequoia Room at the Hallmark Inn, 110 F St. in Davis, open at 8 a.m. The seminar begins at 8:30 and ends at 4:30 p.m. with a one-hour break for lunch on your own in the downtown. The charge is $20 for adults, $10 for students, to be paid at the door to cover the cost of materials and setup.

Seating is limited. To reserve a space, email Chris Dodson at d3birds@sbcglobal.net and include your name and phone number.
