The Bridges group of Vancouver First United Methodist Church was joined by several volunteers from within the church, and even a local contractor and his son, to take on the demolition of a deck and building of a new ramp for church members Gerald and Judy Johnson. Tom Musser, with Bridges, said as he was purchasing materials for the project, local contractor Zach Woltersdorf overheard and volunteered his services, as he is quite the specialist in building ramps, having done hundreds in the community. He showed up with tools, knowledge, and his son Steph last Saturday and joined the Bridges group as well as a half dozen other church volunteers, to assemble the ramp. This project was essential for the Johnsons’ mobility. Demolition happened swiftly and the ground around their home was prepped for the new ramp. And regardless of the sometimes heavy rain, the team built a grand ramp with quality, sturdy materials that will stand the test of time. “This was a great project for many folks to come together,” Musser said. If you want to take part in further projects like this around the area, as well as at Ocean Park’s camp, you can contact Tom Musser at email@example.com or the church at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
