871st to help install Pahala entry roof

The Ka‘u Rural Health Community Association will get finishing touches to the roof over the Resource and Distance Learning Center’s new Americans with Disabilities Act entry ramp this weekend.

Isemoto Construction and Rotary Club of Volcano have been assisting at the center, 96-3126 Puahala St. in Pahala. This weekend, 30 volunteers from the 871st Army Reserve Engineer Unit of Hilo expect to install the roof.

The roof will allow people who use wheelchairs, scooters, crutches and canes to go inside without getting wet between vehicle and building. It will also help elderly individuals who are unable to walk quickly.

Funding for the roof was provided by a grant from the Atherton Family Foundation.
