Dexter Elks Lodge No. 2439 Exalted Ruler Davy Crockett surprised an Essex veteran Monday by installing a handicap ramp at the veteran's home. Crocket was assisted by Elks Veterans Committee Chairperson, Shirley Alexander, in making the presentation. Royce Champion is a Vietnam veteran who resides in Essex with two grandchildren, one of whom is wheelchair bound. The ramp will be utilized by the 19-year-old grandson. The materials to construct the wooden ramp were donated by the local Elks Lodge. Crockett, who owns his own construction business, donated the labor.
