Rotary ramp constructs ramp for Lester

The Rotary Club of Madison County completed its 780th ramp Thursday, June 18 for Gary James Lester, who lives on Hwy, 281 in Madison County. He is 73 years old and has lived in Madison County for 18 years. He worked 33 years for Phillips Medical System installing x-ray equipment for doctors and hospitals and retired due to heart problems. He has had a knee and thigh replaced. Now, both of his legs are not working properly and he cannot climb the steps to access his home. He said he really appreciated the work the crew did for him to construct the ramp and gave a donation toward the materials. Workers on the ramp included Mitchell Hill, Walton Hill, David McGinnis, Bob Padilla, Jerry Coutant, Ed Brown, James Adams, Bruce Gandy and Roy Gandy.
