Members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Explorers marched with Gov. Brian Sandoval in Saturday’s Nevada Day Parade.

The explorers carried banners showing Nevada’s new standard Home Means Nevada license plate, as well as the new Welcome to Nevada signs which were designed by high school students around the state.

Also participating in the Parade were Douglas High School’s JROTC Tiger Battalion, Tumbleweeds Gymnastics, Sen. James Settelmeyer and Assemblyman Jim Wheeler.

Wheeler started the day serving pancakes at the annual Republican Women’s pancake breakfast Saturday morning at the Governor’s Mansion, where Minden resident Miss Nevada Bailey Gumm had breakfast.

The new Wa-She-Shu Casino was also in Saturday’s parade.
