Additional help was provided by Lions Terry and Carol Miller, and Lion Jerry Lueck. The members put forth 42 service hours on the project. Great work Lions Doug, Jerry, Carol, and Terry!

Ramp Built for Elderly Person In Pardeeville - June 4, 2015
Lion Doug Hare engineered and led the project with assistance in building it from Lions Jerry Lueck, Don Spence, and Jim Helmueller. All of the materials were donated by Lions Doug Hare and Terry Miller. The person appreciated what the Club did for her in making her home accessible. Throughout the day, she kept on "eye" on the workers just to make sure it was done right! A wonderful gift for a grateful and gracious lady.
