It may have been a presentation for the Auburn Correctional Facility at the Founders Day celebration in Auburn, but a good chunk of the focus was on corrections officers.
Officers were hailed for their efforts at a presentation Saturday recognizing the institution, which will be 200 years old this year. The events, in which various corrections officials and government officials spoke, took place during a flurry of vendors, classic cars and motorcycles at Founders Day, which celebrates Auburn's history.
At the end of the presentation, current and retired corrections officers were asked to either stand or raise their hands. Members of a color guard presented flags at the beginning and end of the presentation.
