Freedom Shrine dedication to be held at Delta State

By February 16, 2009General

Celebrating the proud heritage that all Americans share, the Exchange Club of Cleveland, will dedicate a Freedom Shrine on Thursday, Feb. 19, at 1:15 p.m. in Jobe Hall on campus.

The Freedom Shrine is a collection of photographic reproductions of original documents from American History. The display includes the Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, the United States Constitution, and the Gettysburg Address.
The Freedom Shrine program is designed to remind Americans that the freedom and greatness we enjoy today were not purchased easily and that these gifts must be cherished and protected. More than 12,000 Freedom Shrines have been dedicated in schools, libraries, military installations and government buildings since the program began in 1949.
Exchange, America’s Service Club, is a group of men and women working together to make our communities better places to live through programs of service in Americanism, Community Service, Youth Activities, and its national project, the Prevention of Child Abuse.
The event is free and open to the public.
