LCC K-9 Comfort Dog JoJo (Living Christ – Arlington Heights, Illinois)
(Wednesday, February 20, 2018 – Daily Herald / Submitted by Gilda Karu)
The National Active and Retired Federal Employees Chapter 1309, based in the Northwest suburbs, welcomed JoJo Comfort Dog to its monthly luncheon meeting on Feb. 13.
The group meets at European Crystal Banquets in Arlington Heights on the second Wednesday of every month.
In light of the recently ended government shut down, JoJo's visit was very appreciated.
JoJo, a 9-year- old golden retriever, is part of the Lutheran Church Charities affiliated Comfort Dog Ministry at Living Christ Lutheran Church on Dundee Road in Arlington Heights. JoJo was accompanied by one of her nine handlers, Gilda Karu, who also serves as the treasurer of NARFE Chapter 1309.
