Lowering of the Washington State and United States Flags

I join the President of the United States in honoring Dorothy Height, a founding matriarch of the American civil rights movement, by directing that Washington State and United States flags at all state agency facilities be lowered to half-staff Thursday, April 29, 2010, in her memory. She died April 20 at age 98.

Please notify your staff and all of your field offices and facilities around the state.

Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Thursday, or first thing Friday morning, April 30.

Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.

Please call (360) 902-0383 if you have any questions about this flag lowering.
