This town needs to get a clue!!! The proper and correct to fly a flag at "half mast" is actually lowering it to a position of 3/4, not half-way down the pole! In a ceremony, you lower it down 1/2 way and then go back up to the 3/4 mark. FYI...in case anyone cares. It bugs me to see a flag 1/2 way down the pole! It's wrong.
