FRANKFORT, Ky. (Dec. 1, 2018) – In accordance with the proclamation by President Donald J. 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 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. For this, we will be forever grateful,” said Gov. Matt Bevin. “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 President Bush.
