Dalles Jorgenson and his service dog, Hayden, walk in downtown Valley City. Hayden is helping Iraq War veteran Dalles Jorgenson of Valley City deal with the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder he suffered during his war time experiences. A local group hopes to raise funds to provide other veterans in our area with service dogs.
A local group of people called, Team Paws4WARD, plans to host a "Purses for a Purpose" event to secure funds for North Dakota veterans in need of a service dog for their invisible wounds, said Crystal Nehlich, who's on the team with Karmel Wanzek and Nathan McGough.
Purses for a Purpose, which allows women to exchange designer and designer-inspired handbags at a social, is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 9 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the Quality Inn and Suites in Jamestown, and tickets may be purchased at Quality Inn and Suites, FCCU and Unison Bank in Jamestown and Dacotah Bank in Valley City or by calling Shelley at (701) 658-0330 or Crystal at (701) 845-2712.
