AUBURN – The U.S.S. Canberra Association conducted Veterans Day services for residents of Schooner Estates, a senior citizens facility on Stetson Road.

The program opened with the Pledge of Allegiance by the assembly. The invocation was given by president emeritus Jerry DerBoghosian, U.S.S. Canberra Association.

Residents who served in the Armed Forces during World War II and Korea were introduced and service songs were sung by the assembly, as well as a sing-a-long of old-time favorites.

The program closed with the singing of “God Bless America” by the assembly. Punch and cookies were served after the program.
