Indiana Campground Hosts Operation Appreciation for Military Families

June 14, 2012

For the second year, CrossRoads RV and Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Fremont, IN hosted an open house in honor of all active-duty and retired military personnel. Operation Appreciation Open House was held on Armed Forces Day, May 19. The event was in celebration of the continuing partnership between the two Northern Indiana businesses, according to a news release. The program was designed to benefit active-duty military personnel with some “rest and relaxation.” For Operation Appreciation, Jellystone Park donates a seasonal lot while CrossRoads RV supplies a luxurious Hampton destination trailer for military personnel and their families to use, free of charge.

During the open house, which ran from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., all of Jellystone Park’s amenities were available, including mini-golf, a waterslide and basketball. Additionally, special children’s activities were planned and a lunch was served. CrossRoads RV also offered tours of the Operation Appreciation Hampton unit.

Boo Boo and Yogi get a chance to thank Roger Barry, (left), Fremont, Ind., Jellystone Park owner, and Don Emahiser, Pesident of CrossRoads RV, for making Operation Appreciation a huge success.
