I really liked this very short announcement in this Michigan paper. It briefly tells of the flag retirement ceremony, conducted by area Scouts, for the flag flying outside the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum. This ceremony concludes the period of mourning for former President Ford.
Heart warming …
In a sunset ceremony (approximately 5:30 pm) Thursday, the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum will retire the flag, which has flown since President Ford’s death was announced.
Area Boy Scouts will honor the flag with a ritual raising then lowering.
Flags will return to full staff at sunrise Friday, January 26, 2007
