Did you know? Thomas Jefferson believed that Americans should examine and rewrite the U.S. Constitution to fit their needs every two decades! If you could scrap these parchment pages and redraft the text, what elements would you include, amend or leave out entirely?  Utilizing the Socratic Method of inquiry and discussion, you have the chance to be like our Founding Fathers each month as we look at the Constitution, from the preamble to the articles to the amendments, engaging in civil discourse to ‘create’ a new Constitution.

Constitution Cafés are FREE to attend. Students, adults and seniors are welcome. Programs take place on the second Sunday of each month at 2:00 pm (except for holidays). Come every time we meet or just drop in when you can!
