Rotary constructs ramp for Hitchcocks

The Madison County Rotary Club recently built a handicap ramp for William and Nina Hitchcock of Danielsville. It was a 5x4 platform and a 10-foot ramp. “We were very careful to follow all the precautions that are outlined for getting out because of the beast covid virus,” organizers said. “We wore the masks and gloves and used a small crew staying far apart. The ramp went very well.” Rotary members noted that Nina is well known in Madison County, as she worked 25 years in the county tag office. She is now having trouble climbing steps and getting off their front porch. William is also a Madison County native and worked for Yellow Freight Company as a truck driver for 26 years. He is also a veteran having served in the U.S. Army for three years. He now has severe hip problems. Both of them attend the Friendship Baptist Church. They gave a donation to help pay for the materials. Workers included Ed Brown, Roy Gandy, Matt Berryman, Walter Hill, Mitchell Hill, Johnny Westmoreland, Alan Phillips, Bob Padilla, Johnny Minish, David McGinnis and Bruce Gandy. “To keep the numbers down, some of us worked on our trailer and generator,” organizers said.
