Last night, Tuesday April 4, Rev. Steve Craft and I presented 1,500 pocket copies of the U.S. Constitution to Mr. Tim Broadrick, Superintendent of Alton and Barnstead, NH Schools and the School Committee. Prior to the meeting, Mr. Broadrick handed copies to the members of the board. I made some comments pointing out the sad state of an understanding of the Constitution in the nation, and thanked the committee for accepting the donation and ensuring that their students will have a knowledge and appreciation of our Constitution. I referred to the U.S. Constitution as an “owner’s manual for a free people.” We also offered Alton High School’s history club a visit to our learning center in Lexington, MA, and a tour of Lexington and Concord.

This donation came about after Mr. Broadrick read our article about our donation of pocket Constitutions to the Laconia, NH’s junior high and high school back in January which was posted on the “Alton Uncensored” Facebook page http://campconstitution.net/camp-constitution-donates-pocket-u-s-constitutions-to-high-school-and-junior-high-students-in-laconia-nh/ We have plans to make donations of these Constitutions to other school in the region.
Since Camp Constitution’s inception in 2009, we have donated and distributed over 30,000 pocket Constitutions. And we are just getting started. We purchase our Constitutions from the National Center for Constitutional Studies https://nccs.net/
Readers who would like to help our efforts may donate via our PayPal account accessed from our website’s homepage http://www.campconstitution.net or by check payable to Camp Constitution and sent to my address at 146 Powder Mill Rd. Alton, NH 03809
