Constitution Day 9/17/2011

"Celebrate Constitution Day! "
Yesterday Saturday, September 17th was Constitution Day! The U. S. Constitution was signed on September 17, 1787 . Constitution Day! Federal law requires public schools to observe that day, but studies show that up to 90 percent of schools ignore the law. This year as we celebrate the 224th anniversary of the Constitution, take time to read this document, study it with your children, and discuss its great principles. And by the way, despite the claims of many secularist writers today, the Constitution is not a Godless document. Many of its clauses directly incorporate religious principles, and Founders who wrote and ratified it specifically acknowledged God in its creation:

It is impossible for the man of pious reflection not to perceive in it a finger of that Almighty Hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the Revolution. James Madison

For my own part, I sincerely esteem it a system which without the finger of God never could have been suggested and agreed upon by such a diversity of interests. Alexander Hamilton

I beg I may not be understood to infer that our general Convention was Divinely inspired when it formed the new federal Constitution . . . yet I must own [admit] I have so much faith in the general government of the world by Providence that I can hardly conceive a transaction of such momentous importance . . . should be suffered to pass without being in some degree influenced, guided, and governed by that omnipotent, omnipresent, and beneficent Ruler in Whom all inferior spirits live and move and have their being [Acts 17:28]. Benjamin Franklin

I do not believe that the Constitution was the offspring of inspiration, but I am as perfectly satisfied that the Union of the States in its form and adoption is as much the work of a Divine Providence as any of the miracles recorded in the Old and New Testament. Benjamin Rush

Remembering September 11, 2001 10 years Later

Pictures from today's 911 Rememberance service at the Presho Methodist Church.

The Lindley-Presho Fire Department and First Responders were recognized today for their dedicated services (-whatever or whenever they are needed ) to the Lindley-Presho Community .

In the group photo are several of the 115 Charter Members of the Fire Department organized in 1963- - almost 50 years ago. Unfortunately, only about 30 of the original membership are still living. It was nice to see a few of them present today.

The rest of the group are members of the 2011 Fire Department.

The young man -BenjaminToby is a third generation fire fighter.

Congratulations again for the time and efforts that you spend serving the Town of Lindley residents.

Thank you - members of the Presho Church for the memorial service remembering the victims and families of September 11,2001 and for the hearty brunch that followed.

The Lindley Presho Historical Society
wishes to extend our
Deepest Sympathy to the Family and Friends
Ellen A. Fee
The Lord is My Shepherd; I shall not want.
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.
He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil:
for Thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me:
Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my enemies:
thou annoinest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life:
and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.
Psalm 23: 1-6
