Glenwood Springs Police responded to a false alarm at a local bank on Wednesday afternoon. According to Police Chief Terry Wilson the alarm was accidentally tripped. Police responded because of the alarm, but no crime was in progress.

Come up to the Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park on Saturday to support Operation Vacation and to meet soldiers who have benefited from the program’s generosity.

“It’s going to be a good time,” said Operation Vacation founder Bob Johnson. “It’s a perfect opportunity to get up on the deck and have a good time with some soldiers.”

The event is to raise awareness for Operation Vacation. About 10 Fort Carson soldiers will be there from noon to 4 p.m. enjoying the adventure park and to speak to the public about the local nonprofit Operation Vacation.

Don Chaney with KSNO radio will be on location doing a live broadcast from 1-3 p.m.

Operation Vacation, Coors and the Glenwood Caverns will have free giveaways, including shirts, tickets for rides and other good stuff. Also, Glenwood Caverns will have a coupon in the Post Independent for free tram rides that can be used this weekend.
