VETERANS OF ’56 ¶ SEPTEMBER 14, 1908 Auld Lang Syne. ¶ Should auld acquaintance be forgot / And never brought to mind; / Should auld acquaintance be forgot, / And songs of auld lang syne. / For auld lang syne we meet today, / For auld lang syne; / To sing the song our fathers sang / In days of auld lang syne. ¶ We've passed through many varied scenes, / Since youth's unclouded day; / And friends, and hopes, and happy dreams, / Time's hand hath swept away. / And voices that once joined with ours, / In days of auld lang syne, / Are silent now, and blend no more / In songs of auld lang syne. ¶ Yet ever has the light of song / Illumed our darkest hours ; / And cheered us on life's toilsome way, / And gemmed our path with flowers; / The sacred songs our fathers sang, / Dear songs of auld lang syne; / The hallowed songs our fathers sang / In days of auld lang syne.Veterans of “56” ¶ Annual Meeting September 14, ’08 ¶ BUSINESS MEETING 12 M. ¶ PICNIC DINNER 1 P.M. ¶ Program. ¶ MUSIC ¶ Greeting by President ".
