First Amendment Event June 21

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 7/3/24 | 7/3/24

DELHI – Celebrate the Constitution – Square Up for the First Amendment and Freedom of the Press will take place on June 21 from 5-7 p.m. at the Courthouse Square in Delhi. This public event is sponsored by the Delaware County Democratic Committee to commemorate the date when the Constitution became law.  On June 21, 1788, the threshold for 2/3 of the states was met as New Hampshire became the 9th state to ratify the Constitution.

The program will feature a short address by Richard Stein, former co-publisher and general manager of the Riverdale Press, a Pulitzer Prize winning weekly newspaper in the Bronx.  Stein will focus on the importance of a free press in our democracy.  In addition, there will be readings of the Bill of Rights, music by the Tremperskill Boys, a “know your Constitution” quiz and homemade baked goods.
