FRANKFORT, Ky. – In accordance with the proclamation by President Trump, both American and state flags at public office buildings are lowered to half-staff beginning immediately until sunset on Dec. 30, 2018, to honor former President George H.W. Bush, who passed away Friday evening.
“President Bush dedicated the majority of his adult life as a public servant to our great nation,” Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin said. “For this, we will be forever grateful. Kentucky joins the Bush family and the American people in mourning the loss of our 41st president. Tonight, as part of the vast array of stars in the universe, there shines an extra point of light as a reminder of a life well lived.”
All individuals, businesses, organizations and government agencies are encouraged to join in this tribute of lowering the flag in honor of former President Bush.
