Most government offices, schools closed Monday

Federal, state and local government offices will be closed Monday to celebrate Veterans Day.

Public school, community college and college students are off for the day and no postal delivery or other services will be available Monday.

The only governmental employees on the job will be in public safety fields. Sheriff's deputies will be on patrol as usual and fire and paramedic crews will work throughout Carson City, Douglas, Lyon and Storey counties.

Snow plows and other emergency crews are on call for the holiday.

Public libraries will be closed and will reopen Tuesday at 10 a.m.

Banks are closed, but area chamber of commerce officials say most retail stores will be open for business along with restaurants and grocery stores.

State Veterans Services Director Chuck Fulkerson said a number of events are scheduled to honor veterans, including the annual parade in Virginia City at 11 a.m. Monday.

A ceremony in Mills Park at 2 p.m. is planned to rededicate memorials to deceased Vietnam veterans. A parade will be staged in downtown Reno.

Fulkerson said the movable wall listing the names of those who died in Vietnam will be open to the public throughout the weekend at Rancho San Rafael Park in Reno.

Outgoing Attorney General Frankie Sue Del Papa will speak at the wall at 10 a.m. Monday.
