On Saturday June 2nd, the Georgetown Rotary Ramp Build team constructed a ramp for Mr. Magdaleno Serrato of Liberty Hill.  Mr. Serrato, who is elderly had a heart attack and stroke and is currently dealing with Parkinson's Disease and Dementia.  Most recently, he fell and broke his hip.  It will require him to use a wheel chair for an indefinite period of time.  The ramp built will enable Mr. Serrato to safely leave his home as well provide a small deck that will allow him to safely enjoy the comfort of the outdoors.
This is the 40th handicapped ramp  the Georgetown Rotary Build team has constructed for the Texas Ramp project.  This event was part of a Ramp Build Blitz that saw seventeen (17) ramps built by various organizations in a five (5) county area on June 2, 2018.
Rotarians who volunteered to help build include: George Lourigan (lead), Ron Garland, Gerry Parker, Mike Cox (rookie), Henry Yu, Denis Pepin, David Kellerman, Wilson Morris, Cris Cash, Larry Baird (chief engineer), Darrick McGill and sons. Our administrator Myra Page joined us for pictures.
