For those of you that missed it Friday afternoon, the Constitution Day Celebration at the Circle Theater in downtown Sebring was very well done! The event was organized and sponsored by the Highlands Chapter of The Sons of the American Revolution (SAR) and the Champion for Children Foundation. The event marked the 229th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution.
After being introduced by former Mayor George Hensley, the Rev. J. David Juliano, Pastor of the First Umited Methodist Church of Sebring provided a very interesting presentation on the Magna Carta and the role it played in the development of the US Constitution.
David Leidel, a member of The Highlands Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, introduced Rev. J. Nuno Norberto. Pastor Norberto offered a whole different perspective with his presentation of “Coming to America.” Pastor Norberto told of wanting to come to the United States from his native Brazil from his earliest memories. He shared his journey to become Pastor of Music and Senior Adults at the First Baptist Church in Sebring and what our Constitution means to him.
