A prayer was recited and both the American and Armenian anthems were sung while the American and Armenian flags were raised. The Armenian flag will be up over the weekend.

The Armenian Anthem

Mer hayrenik’, Azat, Ankakh, 
Vor aprel eh tareh tar, 
Yoor vordik’e ard kanchum eh Azat, 
Ankakh Hayastan. 

Amenayn tegh mah’e mi eh, 
Mard mi angam pit merni, 
Bayts yerani ovr yur azgi 
Azatutyan k’e zohvi.
