~ On the Horizon….
- Walter is in need of a new motorized wheelchair!
~His ride to work is getting worn out!
BEFORE any money is raised for a Motorized Wheelchair…..
Please know… any money you donate is much welcomed on Walter’s behalf, and helps with the overall goal mentioned above, of helping Walter remain active, cared for & able to do the things he loves, for years to come!
Regarding a NEW motorized wheelchair:
Here’s the goal:
The 3 P’s: We need a plan, a product, and a price!
Before we specifically raise any money for a new motorized wheelchair, I think it best we have the three-P’s in place. I have known Walter since 1992 and this will be the 4th motorized wheelchair we have worked on I believe.
….I am in the process of working on the three-P’s!! I have a wonderfully busy family, so I carve out time as I can to work on this! Your patience, and especially, Walter’s always constant patience, is very much appreciated!
….We welcome your thoughts, ideas, input and comments!
Thank you very much!
