What was with all the Law Enforcement in Riverton last night?!
County 10 received several questions about massive law enforcement activity last night, Monday, June 11th. The answer? A special escort through Riverton for Triton Fritz to his huge Star Wars themed birthday party fundraiser at the Acme.
Triton is fighting his second battle with cancer and the community pulled together to celebrate and show him support.
It came together in a big way as law enforcement from Riverton and Lander were joined by representatives from Big Horn, Sweetwater, Natrona, Converse and Laramie Counties in an escort that stretched two city blocks. Triton arrived in style to be welcomed by Darth Vader flanked by Stormtroopers.
Barry Cinemas hosted the event and made sure Triton had plenty of Star Wars gifts and fun. Then family, friends and numerous local Star Wars fans got to see Star Wars: A New Hope on the big screen.
It was a special night for a special kid and a reminder of how amazing our Wyoming communities can be when it comes to supporting each other. Check out the gallery of images from the festivities below.
