Veteran's Day, November 11, 2022

The Colorado Avalanche honored all veterans during their game against the Nashville Predictors on Thursday night, November 10. It was exciting to see that Mr. Hatch was the night's Guest of Honor! Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Hatch for your service. Your sacrifice makes it possible for all of us to enjoy the freedoms we have today.

Great win too!
