The Avalanche continued its thanks to veterans and current members of the armed forces and their families on Friday, Nov. 8, as the team invited 200 fifth and sixth graders from District 8 Ft. Carson schools in Colorado Springs. Many of the children currently have, or have experienced, a parent who has been deployed. With the help of the Gold Crown Foundation and USO, the kids had an afternoon of games and activities at Gold Crown Field House before attending Colorado's game against the Calgary Flames.
