The Triton  community came together last week to present 26 flags and stands to the Triton High School. The flags will be placed in all high school classrooms.

26 flags donated to Triton High School

Triton High School classrooms will each have an American flag when school resumes next fall thanks to the efforts of several Triton area groups.

The 26 flags and stands were presented to Triton High School officials last week.

The idea for the flags came from Triton High School Teacher Ali Horejsi, said Chris Pluto of the Dodge Center Lions Club. Horejsi suggested the idea and the Lions Club took on the job of coordinating the project.

The Claremont Chamber of Commerce donated money to buy the flags while the Dodge Center American Legion purchased the flags, Pluto said.

Numerous groups from the Triton community supported the project with representatives from the Lions, Dodge Center American Legion, Claremont Fire Department, West Concord Fire Department, West Concord Police, Dodge Center Fire Department and Ambulance Department and Dodge County Sheriff Office, attending the presentation.

“Thank you, everybody, for the effort to put “Old Glory” in all the classrooms,” said Triton Supt. Brett Joyce.
