Governor Matt Mead is encouraging Wyoming citizens to join with the rest of the nation in honoring former President George H.W. Bush with a “Day of Mourning” on Wednesday, December 5.
The President has issued a proclamation designating December 5 as a National Day of Mourning. The proclamation calls on the American people to assemble on that day in their respective places of worship, quote, “there to pay homage to the memory of President George H.W. Bush.” Endquote.
Federal offices across the country, including Wyoming, will be closed on Wednesday, although State offices will remain open.
In a statement, Governor Mead said the former President should be honored on December 5 – a day in which his memorial services will be held in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
