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.

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.
