Lowe’s helps replace Lions Club ramps


The Lions Club stairs have been replaced courtesy of the Lowe’s Heroes program. Each year Lowe’s selects a project in the community to receive a $2,500 grant for a charitable project. “We wanted to do something that was in our backyard,” said Lowe’s employee Jason Shilling, who coordinated the project in Boone County. “Lions Club is used by thousands of people every weekend.” Ten Lowe’s employees and six Lions Club members helped replace the ramps from Elm Street to the park in August, and they returned in September to replace the steps and walkway. The wood was last replaced approximately 20 years ago, according to Lions Club members. The Lowe’s Heroes program began roughly 10 years ago with a mission to transform lives one community at a time.
