This is the first time Hamden students didn’t have Veterans Day off here, so they’re making sure students recognize it with a full day of events in the town.

At 9 a.m., all the kids at the high school will have an assembly. The entire school day will be dedicated to learning about the sacrifices veterans and their families have made for our county.

Then at 11 a.m., veterans organizations from Hamden to New Haven will lay wreaths in the Veterans Memorial Auditorium rotunda. They will say the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem too. All the neighbors in town are invited to this as well.

Around 1:30 p.m., the elementary school kids will have a similar type of service.
