Rotary Club constructs ramp for Ronald Chase

The Rotary Club of Madison County recently constructed a handicap ramp for Ronald Chase, 82, who has had severe trouble with his feet and legs and has been falling frequently. Chase went to the hospital where he found he had a tumor the size of a half dollar. He contracted an infection and now cannot get out of bed. His wife, Linda, said she was extremely grateful for the ramp as she had to get him in and out of the house to go to the hospital and doctor. Chase, a long-time Madison County resident, owned a pest control company in this area for about 13 years. His wife said he was a very good person who liked to help people, like all the people helping build the ramp. Workers on the ramp included Anthony Dove, Roy Gandy, Ed Brown, Bruce Gandy, Jerry Coutant, and James Adams, from the Rotary Club, and volunteers Autry Bishop, David McGinnis, Johnny Minish, Johnny Westmoreland, Alan Phillips, Walton Hill and Wade Scarboro. “The volunteers are helping the Rotary Club of Madison County build handicapped ramps, and they are very much appreciated for their hard work and skills in the construction,” Rotary leaders said.
