Tracine Farrow, of the Yelm Lions Club, received a call to help a person who needed a wheelchair ramp. She called the Lacey Sunrise Lions for assistance. Reggie Christen, 976A Tipsoo Loop, Rainier, WA. had an infection that developed into gangrene. He was admitted into the hospital and his leg was amputated. He was house bound without the use of a ramp.
On July 20th, members from the Rainier Lions, Yelm Lions, and Lacey Sunrise Lions worked together and constructed a 16 foot ramp. The project was completed in three hours.
