Securing Glenwood Cemetery's supply of flags

A gift to the city of Ogden. See story for identification.

Thirty flags were donated to the City of Ogden on Monday evening on behalf of the Dan Sesker Memorial Poker Run. These flags will be used to replace or add to the display put up by the Ogden Water Buffaloes at Glenwood Cemetery. 

With the help from the community, this year’s benefit brought in around $12,000 that is used to help support Dan’s son Gage’s trust fund. With these earnings, they were also able to fund a weekend getaway that included skydiving for veterans and also put together three, $1,000 scholarships for the students at Ogden Community Schools.
