To watch these guys work you would think they have been doing this for years. In fact, they have been, nearly fifteen years. And just what they are doing is donated their time and talents as The Trinity Episcopal Ramp Squad.
Beginning in 1998 as The Brotherhood of St. Andrew, the mostly retired group of men started with only eight volunteers. Today, they have more than 40, with an average age of 75 and they build at least a one ramp each month.
Cody Stanley, a SJHP carpenter who has worked with the group on many ramps said, “It is always a pleasure to work with these guys. They get in and get the work done and they know what they are doing.”
When they first started, it might two take two days to finish a ramp. After building more 150 ramps, they can usually get it done in half a day.
Bill Lazar is happy to have them has a community partner.” The ramp squad is the very definition of what the spirit of volunteerism is. They take what they do very seriously and they always give their all. ”
Thank you members of the Trinity Ramp Squad for all you hard work and community spirit. We couldn’t do it without you.
