Founding Fathers to present at university

Posted: Friday, September 3, 2021

The Founding Fathers, a program honoring Constitution Day 2021, will be held Friday, September 17. The Huntington County Chamber of Commerce invites the community to the Zurcher Auditorium at Huntington University to hear Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams as they discuss the Constitution and events of that day.

On September 16 and 17, they will also hold convocations for Huntington County Community School Corporation students. Barry Stevens as Benjamin Franklin, Michael Lepage as John Adams and Tom Pitz as Thomas Jefferson, will engage students in assemblies both days.

On Friday evening, September 17 – which is Constitution Day across America as well as the 173rd anniversary of the establishment of the City of Huntington – they will take the stage, in 18th-century costume, for a free public performance at Huntington University’s Zurcher Auditorium. Sponsorship for Friday’s event is provided by the City of Huntington, Huntington University, Huntington County Community School Corporation and Our Sunday Visitor.

Those interested in history and the lives of these “Founding Fathers” will find this program enlightening. The community is encouraged to attend.

Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for the 7 p.m. “Founding Fathers” program. The program will be held in the Zurcher Auditorium in the Merillat Centre for the Arts on the Huntington University campus, 2303 College Avenue.
