Rotary Club builds ramp for Barbara and Roy Gandy

Roy Gandy has overseen the building of hundreds of handicap ramps by the Rotary Club of Madison County. On Feb. 4, the club built one for the 90-year-old Rotarian and his wife, Barbara. Rotary members said it was an honor to construct the 10-foot ramp and handrails for the Gandys. “Now that Roy is 90 and slowing slightly, he and Barbara both could use a mobility ramp,” Rotary leaders said. “After constructing the ramp and before Barbara served warm cookies, the ramp crew had an opportunity to admire the new room addition to their house. The room is a beautiful and cheerful homage to the memory of their two sons who have passed on, the most recent only last year due to Covid-19. The ramp leads to that room and serves as a humble tribute to the couple who formed the soul of the Madison County Rotary Club’s ramp program, serving more than 30-years and constructing more than 800 ramps for the people of Madison County.” The Rotarians and volunteers who made the ramp possible for the Gandys were Alan Phillips, Ed Brown, Artry Bishop, Walton Hill, Johnny Minish, Bruce Gandy, James Adams, David McGinnis, Harry Rice, Don Sullinger and Wesley Chandler.
