Followup: West Seattle “Rampathon” project complete!

Last night, we previewed the Potter Construction (WSB sponsor) project (with financial support from the Rotary Club of West Seattle) that was to be part of today’s “Rampathon” by volunteers around King/Snohomish Counties. Got to the worksite in Highland Park before 11 am, and the ramp was already all done! The residents told us the crews had left minutes earlier.

(5:17 pm update – substituted that photo just sent by Gary Potter, with not only the family who lives in the home, but also a crew sent by EZ Access, the Algona firm that made the aluminum ramp!) The new ramp means a woman who lives at the house will get to leave more often – without it, she couldn’t go out without two people helping her get up and down the stairs.

    Well with Potter Construction building it, it should last! Looks like it will hold plenty of weight…at least a ton on it in the picture. Times are tough for everyone, but companies like Potter Construction are what will always make a community a community!

    The freedom to come and go as we please is something we all take for granted until we loose that ability.

    It was very gratifying to see the customer smile when she was able to go up and down her ramp for the 1st time.

    Glad to have been a part
