It seems as though some in the political arena are inventing new rights for us all the time. The right to 'free' health care, the right to adequate housing, the right to avoid paying student loans, and on and on. Well we need to go back to America's Bill of Rights and learn what they are, and where they come from.

What better way to commence our study but to have the Honorable Mike McKay, Judge in the Van Buren 7th District Court, present to us his understanding of America's Bill of Rights from his prospective as a practicing attorney and now as a Judge in our court system.

Judge McKay is a very good presenter; he has presented at one of our Scholarship Award events. You will enjoy this session, I promise.

The book raffle will be for "Bill of Rights, with Writings that Formed Its Foundation"
