Older Adult Mobility
Through the generosity of individuals and a grant from the Synod of the Sun, Mo-Ranch recently purchased two scooters for use on the upper campus by persons who need the transportation assistance. Pictured in this article is Rev. Fane Downs, a frequent participant at Mo-Ranch conferences. Here is her response to these scooters. “I love these Mo-Ranch scooters. I was the first to use one during the recent women’s conferences. I served on the faculty of this conference and needed some freedom to come and go. I did not want to tie the golf cart drivers up with special trips. I have some mobility issues and the scooter enabled me to go where I needed to be on time. The scooter is very easy to navigate, comfortable, and a great addition to Mo. Thanks for the grant from the Synod for this addition to Mo-Ranch. There are two scooters: I think they will be utilized well.” Scooters have been a frequent request from people attending conferences and retreats. Mo-Ranch intends to add two additional scooters per year for the next three years. Mo-Ranch is located in Mission Presbytery.
