Lions, local builder help Cottage Grove man in need of wheelchair ramp
Joe Murphy dedicated more than 40 years to the St. Paul Park-Newport Lions Club, and the organization found a way to help him out in return.
Murphy, 88 years old and suffering from Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases, lives in old Cottage Grove and has difficulty getting around. There was no way for him to get in and out of his home in a wheelchair, said his daughter, Kelly Murphy.
"The front steps didn't even have a railing on it," she said.
