Riverton Firefighters walked with heavy sand bags for Veterans on Sunday

It was a curious sight in Riverton on Sunday morning. A group of firefighters in full bunker gear, from helmet to boots, started carrying 100 pound and 45 pound sand bags. The route was from City Hall to Fire Station #4 on South Broadway. "We were walking for Veterans," said Scott Walters. "We received a flyer from this group in Colorado promoting the Sand Bag Walk, so we decided to do it this year and we'll probably do it again next yet, but to benefit local veterans." A local student headed the procession with the flag as the firefighters followed. "A lot of people asked about what we were doing."
