Commander John S. Leinbach has issued the following general order to Reno Post No. 64, G.A.R.

In accordance with the annual custom, this post has been assigned the duty and no more a sacred duty can be performed than the beautiful ceremony of strewing flowers and planting the national colors upon the mounds beneath which lies the precious dust of those who in their devotion for our country’s weal, risked their all. Let us therefore on the approaching Memorial Day, renew our allegiance to our country, the flag and its institutions.

Comrades of the Post and other veterans will assemble at headquarters, 130 West Third Street, in regulation Grand Army of the Republic uniform at 1 p.m. ready to march with the column of parade at sharp at the designated route of march to Brandon Park where the formal Memorial Service will be carried out.
The patriotic instructor of the Post has issued the following:

Memorial Day will be observed more generally on account of the war we are now engaged in, not brought on by our acts, but forced upon us by the actions of Germany while all our people are interested and exercised as to its outcome. The struggle is world- wide and momentous in the extreme.

It is particularly fitting that we should rekindle our lives and consecrate all to the nation for which those honored living and dead gave such bountiful loyalty. We should on this devote our thoughts and our energies to a fitting observance of the purpose of this day.

Let bells be tolled for five minutes at noon and all comrades stand with uncovered heads in silence for that period.
