INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A ceremony in Indianapolis will honor the life and legacy of former U.S. Sen. Richard Lugar.
The ceremony takes place around midday Monday at the recently-dedicated Richard G. Lugar Plaza, located on the south side of the City-County Building. Indiana Eric Holcomb, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett and others are scheduled to participate in the memorial event.
Holcomb has directed flags across Indiana to be flown at half-staff to honor Lugar. Holcomb's office says flags should be flown at half-staff until sunset on the day of Lugar's funeral, which has not yet been announced. Holcomb also asks businesses and residents to lower their flags to half-staff as well to honor Lugar.
