St John Council 11281 Builds Ramp

A Parishioner who is wheelchair bound, was having difficulty navigating from her home via the entryways which existed. The KofC members built ramps to the rear lanai and the front entry to the garage.

KofC Members Martin Gauthier and Bill Warvel built and installed the two ramps. The custom made platforms were made to have even access from the interior floor levels and also long enough to reduce the incline making access and egress easier and safer.

The rear (lanai) ramp incorporated an ingenious hinged edge at the top which was movable (up and down) permitting the ramp to extend into the doorway for smooth access after the sliding doors were opened.

Another part of the council outreach efforts and the St. John the Evangelist Parish "CARE" program, serving the Parish and Community in need.
