Wednesday, December 15, 2010 • Posted December 14, 2010

The legislation also directed the flag to be flown at half staff until sunset. On Tuesday, December 7, at 8:00am, members of Blanco County’s American Legion Memorial Highway Post 352 stood at attention in near freezing weather as taps was sounded and the flag flown in front of the Old Blanco County Courthouse was lowered to half staff.
