Two elderly and handicapped members of VFW Post 2920 in Crestline had something nice done for them Tuesday.

Industrial Arts students at Crestline High School installed wheelchair ramps at their homes. The students built the ramps, and the $1500 cost of wood and materials was paid by the VFW.

One of the ramps was installed at 208 South Washinton Avenue, the home of VFW Ladies' Auxiliary member Carol Jacobs, who otherwise can't get out of her home.

The other ramp was installed at the home of 95-year-old World War Two veteran Bob Fisher, at 432 North Wiley Street.
