Operation Roaring River is an all expenses paid trout fishing event for veterans hosted by Charlie 22 Outdoors, a non-profit organization founded by Scott Hettinger and based out of Webb City. The group will be camping out May 20-23, 2019, in Roaring River State Park.
“The Mission of Charlie 22 Outdoors is to provide outdoor activities to our nation’s veterans with the goal of showing them there is hope, love and a personal meaning in God’s grace.”
Hettinger said Charlie 22 Outdoors provides the events free of charge to those who served and their families. Charlie 22 Outdoors covers all expenses including travel, lodging, food, tags, guides, taxidermy, and meat processing.
There are a number of activities scheduled including fly tying class, swimming, basketball, walking in the woods, hike and go seek, kickball and more.
Roaring River is closing off Zone One from 6:30 a.m.- noon each day for the vets, their families and the volunteers to fish.
