Annie's House Bottineau... Ney York Says Thank You
The New York Says Thank You Foundation was formed to say thank you to all who helped in the destruction of the World Trade Center on Sept. 11, 2001, as a way to help other communities around the country the way New York City was helped after that tragic day. This year, on the 11th anniversary of those attacks, the foundation is thanking Bottineau, ND.
Hundreds of volunteers from around the country have been at Bottineau Winter Park for the past week, helping to build Annie's House, a new chalet that will be North Dakota's first adaptive ski facility. It will be used to teach disabled children, young adults and wounded warriors how to ski. It is being built to honor the memory of Ann Nicole Nelson, one of the only North Dakota people killed in the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City.
