County flags to fly at half-staff Tuesday

Statement as issued Monday by the Allen County commissioners:

(September 10, 2012) — Flags at all Allen County-owned buildings will be lowered to half-staff Tuesday in recognition of Patriot Day.

In addition, Allen County residents are being asked to observe a moment of silence beginning at 8:46 a.m. to honor those who lost their lives as a result of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

The U.S. House of Representatives approved Joint Resolution 71 by a vote of 407-0 on October 25, 2001. It requested that the President designate September 11 of each year as “Patriot Day.” President George W. Bush signed the resolution into law on December 18, 2001.
