In 2019, the Legion donated their flags to the Optimist club.  These included 25 good flags and 13 others that needed repairs.  The Optimist Club thanks the American Legion for these flags.  The Optimist Club puts five flags in front of the Community Center in recognition of the American Legion..

In 2018, Woodmen of the World donated 20 new flags, so we decided to put flags by the ZION cemetery and the High School in Treynor.  We will do so again this year.  If you would like to sponsor a flag by the ZION cemetery or the High School, please let us know.

We had a great turnout Jan 8, 2020 with the Treynor Music Boosters.  It was the most cans ever sortted for a two week period

The redemption center now collects cans every two weeks,  instead of twice a month as in previous years. This allows more organizations to benefit from the Can Kennel.  Each organization will receive revenues for  four weeks instead of a full month, as follows:
