Rotary constructs ramp for Annie Louise Cooper

Members of the Rotary Club of Madison County and volunteers constructed a 16-foot and 10-foot handicap access ramp joined by a four-by-five-foot landing on Thursday, Oct. 27 for Annie Louise Cooper who lives on Alberta Drive in Colbert. Cooper is fighting many health issues including hypertension, and recovering from a stroke and from back surgery, so she now must use a walker. A long-time resident, Cooper attended Madison County schools and she worked many years at the Swamp Guinea Restaurant. Although closed now, it was widely acknowledged as one of the best barbecue restaurants in northeast Georgia. She has the support of a large and caring family, many of whom the ramp crew had the privilege of meeting during the construction of this large ramp. Cooper attends services at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses in Danielsville. Workers on the ramp included Johnny Minish, Ed Brown, Bruce Gandy, Alan Phillips, James Adams, Wade Scarboro, Walton Hill, Mitchell Hill and Johnny Westmoreland.
