VFW builds shelter for track chair recipient

Vietnam veteran Joe Llewellyn, who was featured in a May 15 Chieftain article about a track chair donated to him, now has a home for the track chair as well, thanks to the efforts of a local citizen and Eagle Cap VFW Post 1307 in Enterprise. The track chair is essentially an ATV wheelchair with tracks, rather than wheels. the tracks allow the chair to travel with relative ease over uneven ground.

Joseph citizen Katherine Stickroth, who spearheaded the track chair donation, did the same Facebook campaign to fund a shelter for the chair. Llewellyn originally did not have a place to shelter the chair. It was too big for the trailer he lives in, so he planned to cover it with a tarp.

The campaign eventually netted some $2000 for the building of the shelter.
