Raimondo Marks Memorial Day by Ordering Flags Lowered
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - In accordance with a Presidential Proclamation, Governor Gina M. Raimondo is directing U.S. and Rhode Island flags at all state agencies and buildings to be flown at half-staff from sunrise until 12pm on Monday, May 29th in observation of Memorial Day. Flags should return to full-staff at 12pm.
"Memorial Day is a time to come together to honor the fallen," Raimondo said. "We endure as a nation because of the men and women who laid down their lives to protect this land that we love."
Raimondo also asks Rhode Islanders to lower their flags to half-staff during this time as a mark of respect.
