Carbondale Fire helps Grizzly youth hockey

The Carbondale & Rural Fire Protection District cheerfully came to the assistance of the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association for its first Grizzly Hockey Golf Ball Drop. Firefighter/EMT Paul “Pablo” Herr (L) and Deputy Chief Bill Gavette (R) arrived at the Ironbridge Golf Club with a CRFPD ladder truck to help “Griz” get high in the air to drop golf balls. Over 800 golf balls were dropped, and over $6,000 was raised for the Glenwood Springs Youth Hockey Association.
