People around the country today are remembering the events of September 11th, 2001 and hundreds of volunteers found a way to honor the only North Dakotan lost in the attacks.

Carpenters flocked to Bottineau this past weekend to help build a ski lodge for wounded veterans. A charity group born from the rubble of the september 11th attacks has traveled the country for nearly a decade to say "thank you" for supporting New York City by paying it forward. Volunteers got a lot of work done this weekend but they've since gone home and there's still much to do to prepare the lodge before ski season. Local volunteers will work on the lodge Monday through Saturday until it's done.

Anyone who wants to help can call the Bottineau Economic Development Corporation or simply come to the winter park and get to work.
