To the editor:

The Patriotic Council would like to express its appreciation to the entire Nevada Community for the wonderful assistance this year in the deployment and recovery of all of the flags during the Memorial Day weekend. Special kudos should go to the Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and Fire Department volunteers, who so ably assisted in both endeavors. Thanks also are due to the soccer and baseball teams that showed up this year for the first time, and as always, we need to thank the American Legion Auxiliary for the preparation of the breakfast on Saturday morning. This year we had the greatest amount of participation that we have had in the three years I have been president of the Patriotic Council. Again, I thank you all as we look forward to next year’s celebration.
