For the second year, CrossRoads RV will be hosting an open house in honor of all active-duty and retired military personnel. The Operation Appreciation Open House will be held on Armed Forces Day, May 19, at Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Barton Lake in Fremont, Ind.
According to a press release, the event is in celebration of the continuing partnership between CrossRoads RV and Yogi Bear’s Jellystone Park Camp-Resort at Barton Lake in the Operation Appreciation Program. The program was designed to benefit active-duty military personnel with some “rest and relaxation.” For Operation Appreciation, Jellystone 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 runs from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., all of Jellystone’s amenities will be available, including minigolf, a waterslide and basketball. Additionally, special children’s activities are planned a lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m. CrossRoads RV will also offer tours of the Operation Appreciation Hampton unit.
“At CrossRoads, we see both the Operation Appreciation program and our annual Operation Appreciation Open House as a way of giving back to the military community,” states Don Emahiser, president of Topeka, Ind.-based Thor Industries Inc. subsidiary. “Last year we were able to give more than 25 military families time together as a family. Our goal is to increase that number this year by getting the word out about the program. ”
The Operation Appreciation Open House is free and open to all active-duty and retired military personnel. To attend, please RSVP to [email protected] More information on the Operation Appreciation program and its sponsors may be found at the CrossRoads RV website.
