Give a Vet a Lift Benefits Disabled Long After Veterans Day.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars in Merrimack, NH decided several years ago they needed to gain access to their post. The only way to access the function room or the canteen was by the stairs. It was obvious the needed to find a solution to their accessibility problem. A committee was started and they formed a campaign called “give a vet a lift”. This campaign raised the money to build a shaftway and install a new Symmetry Elevating Solutions VPC-SL, three stop lift. On 11/11/11 (Veterans Day) the ribbon cutting ceremony took place. Everyone in the organization was thrilled by the new addition. Many of the members who rode the new Symmetry ElevatingSolutions lift were smiles from ear to ear. For many of those vets it was the first time in a long time they had been in the building. The All-Ways Accessible team was praised for the work they did in getting this project completed on time with such expertise.
