From Bob Brown, Dallas Ramps:
Your crew assembled over 340 modules in 2017. That's a significant increase from the 300 they did the year before.  Some of the days we had quite an excessive load for your crew.
Thank you so much. It helped us fulfill our mission to provide freedom for the homebound.  We are grateful that you will continue this service in 2018.


Last Tuesday at Park Manor Nursing Home – we had a good turnout with 16 residents. Thanks to Julie Lichter, John Lopez, John Moore, Terry Sanner and Sandra Williams. We also had 4 key club members from Boyd.
