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 30th in observation of Memorial Day. Flags should return to full-staff at 12pm.

"Memorial Day is an important opportunity to come together as Rhode Islanders to honor the memory of our fallen soldiers," Raimondo said. "We are mindful of their sacrifices, and forever grateful to them and their families."

Raimondo also asks Rhode Islanders to lower their flags to half-staff during this time.
