New Wheelchair Ramp
It’s Number 73 and Number 1
When the UMM unit of Andalusia FUMC needed to build a wheelchair ramp for a disabled friend, they turned to the Brewton FUMC UMM, who specialize in wheelchair ramps. The ramp that the two UMM units built together was number 73 for Brewton and number 1 for Andalusia. Kneeling on the new ramp is Durwood Mantel of Brewton, who supervised the work. Standing, from the left, are Harold Burnham of Andalusia; Jessie Jenkins, the proud new owner of the ramp; Terrence Breckenridge of Brewton; Mike Edwards of Brewton; and Guy Wyche of Andalusia.
Unit Enhances Blue Lake Grounds
Eleven men from the Fairhope UMC did more than plant a seed: they planted 80 ornamental shrubs at Blue Lake. The men spent November 29th planting and mulching camellias, magnolias, sweet olives, Indian hawthorn, encore azaleas and Scarlet’s peak hollies in highly visible spots around the assembly’s three campground areas. The work is part of the conference UMM’s 100 under 100 Project—an ongoing ministry to maintain and beautify the Blue Lake grounds. Other UMM units have updated lighting in campers’ cabins, covered windows with screens, built wheelchair ramps, recovered gables, installed benches at a vesper point for physically challenged campers, maintained individual cabins, replaced and repaired doors, and aided Blue Lake workers in rehabbing a wing of rooms and the camp’s largest kitchen. In addition to serving Blue Lake, the men of the Fairhope UMC also sponsor an annual softball tourney to support the conference’s United Methodist Children’s Home.
