COMING UP, YOU WILL NOT ONLY BE ABLE TO HEAR THAT BIG TOWER BELL IN DOWNTOWN AT THE COURTHOUSE, THERE WILL BE ALL KINDS OF BELLS RINGING IN THAT DOWNTOWN BOROUGH. YOU TO TELL US MORE CAROL REDMAN AND AND MASON ABOUT THE SIX ANNUAL RINGING OF THE BELLS. I LIKE THAT. YOU CAN’T HELP BUT HEAR BELLS RINGING. IT MAKES YOU HAPPY. EXACTLY. TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT THE HISTORY. CONSTITUTION WEEK WAS STARTED BY THE DODGERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION BACK IN THE 50s. THEY WORK FOR PRESTON EISENHOWER WHO SIGNED INTO LAW CONSTITUTION WEEK. SOON AFTER THAT, A GROUP BELLS ACROSS AMERICA, WHERE ALL OF THE GROUPS GET TOGETHER AND TRY TO MAKE SURE THAT WE CELEBRATE THAT CONSTITUTION WITH RINGING OF THE BELLS FROM SEA TO SHINING SEA. IT GETS LOGISTICALLY A LITTLE HARD. SO, SOMETIMES WE HAVE OUR RINGING OF THE BELLS TWO DAYS BEFORE CONSTITUTION WEEK. BECAUSE OF THE DATE. AND IT WILL TAKE PLACE RIGHT THERE AT THE OLD MILL HILL SCHOOL. THIS IS THE FOURTH YEAR WE HAVE DONE IT AT THE OAK HILL SCHOOLHOUSE. SAME PARKING LOT AS THE JONESBORO LIBRARY. YOU BRING A CHAIR, BRING A BELL AND A CHAIR. MAKE SURE YOU BRING A BELL, AND SIT OUT IN THE LINE. IT IS ALWAYS A NICE EVENT. THERE IS MUSIC, THERE IS HISTORY. THIS YEAR WE ARE TALKING ABOUT THE HISTORY OF THE 18th AMENDMENT OF THE 21st AMENDMENT, SINCE IT IS 100 YEARS SINCE THE 18th A MINUTE. YOU GET A CHANCE TO WALK THROUGH THE OLD SCHOOLHOUSE IF YOU WANT TO. THE DAR ALWAYS WINDS UP AN AMAZING PROGRAM FOR THE EVENT. THE DAR, SUCH AN AMAZING GROUP. YOU ALL ARE ABOUT THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. I WILL LOCAL HISTORY, AND HISTORY ALL THE WAY THROUGH. OUR CHAPTER WAS ESTABLISHED IN 1929. AND, WE ARE CENTERED IN JONESBORO, ALTHOUGH WE HAVE MEMBERS ALL ACROSS THE COUNTRY. SINCE NOW WE ARE IN THE ELECTRONIC AGE, THEY CAN PURCHASE WITH NO PROBLEM. YOU ARE GOING TO BRING YOUR BELLS OUT. TELL US SOMETHING ABOUT THE PROGRAM. WE ARE COVERING THE 18th AND 21st AMENDMENT, WHICH IS PROHIBITION. YOU WILL SEE SOME GUN MALLS, AND SOME FLAPPERS, AND SOME PEOPLE MAYBE WITH AXES, THE ANTI-SALOON LEAGUE. WE WILL COVER HOW THAT GOT, THE AMENDMENT GOT PAST TO PROHIBIT LIQUOR. AND THEN HOW 13 YEARS LATER, FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT RAN ON THE WESTERN APPEAL AND HE WAS OVERWHELMINGLY ELECTED. I THINK AMERICA WAS READY FOR IT. THEY WERE READY FOR THAT CHANGE, BECAUSE AFTER IT PASSED, AND THE FEDERAL REGULATION, IT WAS WAY MORE THAN THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE GETTING. SO IT DIDN’T TURN OUT WELL. THERE IS NO COST FOR THIS. THERE IS NO COST, IT IS FREE. THERE IS ALWAYS INQUIRERS INVOLVED TO SHARE MUSIC. WE HAVE BELLS THAT COME FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD, LIKE THAT GIANT HIMALAYAN COWBELL. WAIT A MINUTE. A GIANT HIMALAYAN COWBELL? WELL, IT COULD BE. IT IS VERY LARGE. IF SOMEBODY WALKS IN WITH A GIANT BELL, YOU’RE GOING TO TAKE THEM BACK TO WORK? WE WANT TO SEE, WE EVEN HAVE PEOPLE HOLD UP THEIR CELL PHONES. YOU CAN DOWNLOAD AN APP EXACTLY. I NEED MORE COWBELL. ANY KIND OF UNUSUAL BELL. I HAVE ONE THAT LOOKS LIKE IT WAS FROM THE SALVATION ARMY. I REALLY GOT IT AT A GARAGE SALE. YOU ARE TELLING ON YOURSELF. IF THEY REALLY WANT IT, THEY CAN — THIS IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR EVERYONE TO COME TOGETHER AND LEARN SOME HISTORY. ALL THE WAY FROM OUR AMERICAN HISTORY DOWN TO THE LOCAL JONESBORO. WE HAVE CHILDREN WHO COME, AND THEY WILL BE DOING THE PLEDGE IN THE PREAMBLE. AND WE HAVE A SIGN UP TABLE. ANY CHILD THAT WISHES THEY LEAVE THEIR NAME AND THE NAME OF THEIR SCHOOL, AND THEY WILL GET A CERTIFICATE OF PARTICIPATION. LADIES, THANK YOU SO MUCH. GOT TO HAVE MORE COWBELL.
