Rotary Club constructs ramp for Guest

The 792nd handicap ramp built by the Madison County Rotary Club Ramp Crew was for Betty Guest, who lives on Hwy. 172. “Betty considers herself a life-long resident of Madison County and worked hard in industry at Blue Bell and Overhead Door among others and, most importantly, worked at building a family,” said Rotary leaders. She and her late husband, Joe, were very active in the Oak Grove Baptist Church. She and Joe were also well known for their participation in the annual Comer Christmas Parade, where Joe represented Santa Claus and signaled the arrival of the holidays for the community. Unfortunately, Betty is now battling severe arthritis so her mobility requires a wheelchair or a walker. The Rotarians and volunteers who built the ramp to assist Betty were Bob Padilla, Ed Brown, Rodney Chandler, Johnny Minish, Walton Hill, Mitchell Hill, Johnny Westmoreland, Alan Philips, Bruce Gandy, David Bishop and Harry Rice. “The Rotary Club also acknowledges the generous contribution the Guest family made towards the ramp materials that will assist the Rotary Club as it continues to provide home accessibility for Madison County residents,” Rotary leaders said.
