The Institute on the Constitution’s four-part seminar, “The Truth of America’s Founding – Your Heritage and Mine,” was held at the Monti­cello, Ohio on Saturday, October 6th and Saturday, October 13th. The seminar was well attend­ed by many interested community members of all ages, including an 8th grade and 11th grade student!  These patriotic citizens came together to study and learn about our founding documents, including the May­flower Compact, the Declaration of In­dependence, and the U.S. Constitution.  Much of the information covered in this seminar has been left out of many text books used in schools today.


Bryan and Janice Snyder, retired educators from Logan County, Ohio, led the seminar.  They are part of the team of instructors who lead these classes throughout Ohio and in all 50 states.


Many good comments were expressed by the at­tendees.

We wish to thank retired Church of the Nazarene Pastor, Tom Shobe, and Monticello United Brethren Church members, Gary and Donna Kahler, for their leadership and hard work to make this seminar possible!  We also want to thank Aaron Buffenbarger, an 8th grade student and member of the class, for taking the awesome photos that are part of this article!
