Douglas County legal - 37589

 RESOLUTION 2023R-008 


The Town Board of Gardnerville makes it a policy to invite members of the clergy, religious representatives and representatives of other benevolent organizations in Gardnerville and Douglas County to voluntarily offer an invocation before the beginning of its regular and special meetings at which the Board may take action, for the benefit, blessing, wisdom and guidance of the Board. Any leader of a religious congregation or representative of a benevolent organization with an established presence in the local community, any chaplain for one of the local fire department, law enforcement agency or military units, are eligible to offer this important service at an upcoming meeting of the Board. 

Any organization or individual willing to assist the Board in this regard, please send a written request at your earliest convenience to the Town of Gardnerville at 1407 Hwy. 395, Gardnerville, Nevada. Persons delivering the invocation are scheduled on a first-come, first-serve basis. The dates of the Board’s scheduled regular meetings for the upcoming year are established by policy and are listed on the Board’s website. Special meetings, when called, will be posted on the Board’s website as soon as the Board determines to conduct a special meeting. If you have a preference among the dates, please state that request in your written request. 

This opportunity is voluntary, and you are free to offer the invocation according to the dictates of your own conscience. To maintain a spirit of respect and ecumenism, the Board requests only that the opportunity not be exploited as an effort to convert others to the particular faith of the invocation speaker, nor to disparage any faith or belief different than that of the invocation speaker, nor to disparage any person by name or by inference. 

Town Board of Gardnerville
