Veterans Work Through Wind & Rain to Build Ramp for Widow of Vet

This past Saturday, 5 volunteers turned out, bearing the wind and rain, to build a ramp and install grab bars for a 92 year-old widow of a WWII veteran. 3 of these volunteers were veterans themselves, which was very special to the homeowner, Elna.  Check out the article written about the project in the Mountlake Terrace News on Saturday!
