Governor Chris Gregoire is deeply saddened with the death of Mt. Rainier National Park Ranger Nick Hall and directs that Washington State and United States flags at all Washington State agency facilities be lowered to half-staff in his memory Friday, June 29, 2012. He died last week during a rescue operation on Mt. Rainier.
Flags should remain at half-staff until close of business Friday, June 29.
Other government entities, citizens and businesses are encouraged to join this recognition.
A service for Nick Hall is scheduled at 10:00 am on June 29 at the Jackson Visitor Center at Mt. Rainier.
