At the beginning of the summer, Jill Rathbun came to the Carbondale/Aspen Glen Rotary Club with a humanitarian service project. The Wayt family, who reside in Carbondale, have a 3-year-old disabled child, Chloe, who is wheelchair bound. The driveway and walkway to their home was gravel and not suitable for a wheelchair. The Rotary Club spearheaded getting both the driveway paved and building a wheelchair ramp for Chloe and her family. With the help of a number of contractors from the Roaring Fork Valley, the project was completed, granting Chloe unassisted access to her home.
