Hiway Federal Credit Union’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon (BYR) Committee supports Veterans Campground on Big Marine Lake

ST. PAUL, MN (June 11, 2015) – Hiway Federal Credit Union’s BYR Committee kicked off their Spring/Summer cookouts at Hiway’s Fort Snelling Branch. For several years, Hiway has been grilling brats and hot dogs for their staff and members, sharing the profits with a worthy cause. This year, all profits from the Fort Snelling Branch cookouts will go to the Veterans Campground on Big Marine Lake.

The Veterans Campground provides facilities and opportunities for recreation, rest and recovery for all who have served honorably in the Armed Forces of the United States, their families and sponsored guests. Campers enjoy many outdoor activities including: picnics, playground, walking trails, boating, skiing and fishing. The dollars donated throughout the cookout season will be used to refurbish the fish cleaning building at the campground.

“Hiway is proud to support the Veterans Campground,” said Hiway Federal Credit Union President and CEO Dave Boden. “As an active BYR company, Hiway has maintained a commitment to supporting our nation’s military, veterans and their families. Through the efforts of a special BYR Committee comprised of employees that are current military, veterans and non-military, Hiway is consistently looking for ways to support and fulfill the mission of the BYR to “bring Servicemembers all the way home”.

About Veterans Campground on Big Marine Lake

Veterans Campground is open to all honorably discharged military veterans: active duty, Guard/Reserves, veterans, retired, disabled and military families throughout the United States. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, the campground relies on donations and volunteers to host most activities (i.e., fishing, boating, and hiking) that provide relief and recreation. With so many more Guard and Reserve deployments, more veterans and their families are turning to the camp for family fun and recreation while their loved one is deployed and during their transition back to civilian life.
