The Framingham Rotary Club in late November celebrated the reconstruction of the dangerously crumbling front steps of the 1945 home of an elderly Ashland couple. The club’s Mark Rosen Random Acts of Kindness Award (RAK) financed the reconstruction. Rosen was a long-time member of the club; a fellow Rotarian funds the award program.  The steps were clearly unsafe and had to be rebuilt to reduce the risk of falls and injury to the 94-year-old wife—who receives meals-on-wheels—and her disabled son. Both are in and out of the house daily to visit her husband, also 94 and a resident of a nursing home.  Photos show the steps before and after the construction.
