Logans thank those who have helped

by Merrie Leininger

The Logans have already received a lot of help from the community.

They especially want to thank Carson Valley Sertoma, who jumped in and organized a big project to extend their front porch to a wheelchair ramp and build a pathway to the street.

Mo Draper of Sertoma said it is just the type of project the group likes to get involved in.

“When we find out people in our community need a hand, we like to give a hand. In the past, Tina’s husband Keith has contacted us when he’s had people in the community who needed help as part of his job as a police investigator,” Draper said.

Draper said the club organized many other businesses and organizations that donated time and materials to the project.

Draper said after the concrete is poured into the path, the club plans on installing a railing and lights.

“They live where the driveway is steeply pitched, and her scooter doesn’t have enough power to get up it, so we put in a cement meandering path,” Draper said.

About 20 members of Sertoma worked on the project, and labor was also donated by Tom Carney, Scott Foster, Dirk Jansse and Glenn Watson of D.E. Jansse & Co., Kevin Lummus of Draperies by Lummus and Dave McClure of McClure Building Inspection.

Materials were donated by Bing Materials, Copeland Lumber, P.B. Excavating, and B.R. Construction & Excavating.

“They donated their time and dropped everything to come help, and nobody charged anything,” Draper said.
