BOB KELLEY WHEELCHAIR RAMP PROJECT
We usually install ramps after the Thursday morning club meetings, but then the snow warning came. So the crew assembled on Wed, Feb 10th in 32 degree weather and built the 24 ft ramp for Marion (91 yrs old) and Maxine (88 yrs old) Smith. Maxine tested the ramp and easily walked up and down the incline, giving us her seal of approval.
