Rotary Club constructs ramp for Bower in Banks Co.

The 811th handicap ramp built on March 30 by the Madison County Rotary Club Ramp Crew was in Banks County on Lord Road near Commerce. The construction of this ramp was a notable act of bipartisan cooperation with the Rotary Club of Banks County to provide Elizabeth Bower with the freedom to leave her house in safety. Unfortunately, after a long career in information technology, which included working for AT&T and Northern Telecom, Bower has suffered a debilitating stroke. She is now supported by her children, Beth and Ken, that she and her late husband, Kenneth Bower, reared. In addition to the Rotarians and volunteer workers pictured in the accompanying photograph are Elizabeth and her daughter, Beth. The Rotarians and volunteers on the Madison County ramp crew consisted of Mitchell Hill, Ed Brown, Bruce Gandy, Johnny Minish, Wade Scarboro, Allen Phillips, Artry Bishop, Walton Hill, and David McGinnis. The Rotary Club of Banks County crew consisted of President Vicki Boling, Carolyn Moon, Cheri Nash, Brian Witfield, Rick Billinglea, Doug Cheek, Becky Carlin and Dakota Holcomb. The ramp materials were paid for with funds from the EMC Foundation Grant that the ramp program received earlier this year.
