Flags were lowered late last week in response to a proclamation from President Joseph Biden, marking the solemn milestone of 1,000,000 deaths in the United States from COVID-19. The lowered flags, including the one at the Parks & Recreation garage on Trades Lane, on May 15 also honored Peace Officers Memorial Day. According to US flag code, the American flag on Memorial Day should be flown at half-staff position from sunrise until noon. —Bee Photo, Hicks
