Larsen-Winchester Lions Club, making a wheel chair ramp...

Category: wheelchair ramp | Posted: Fri May 25, 2012 5:27 am

My Mom had a stroke a few years ago...she was walking better but now is getting weaker so my husband and I decided it was time to get a ramp to get her in and out of the house easily...I think she really enjoys it by the last picture of her with the group that built it. Thank you so much Larsen-Winchester Lions Club..

The temperature was in the high 80's and 7 members came to build it for free. You pay for the wood and then when we don't need the ramp , they re-use the wood for another person...

That's really wonderful Sherry. With all the rubbish there is in the world it's heart-warming to see that groups exist to help out like this. You Mom does look happy. Hope she enjoys her new ramp!
