July 17, 2015 – Mr. Ray Green of Lafayette has started a project called “Project Armchair.” The project is to make restaurants, meeting rooms and private businesses aware of seating issues an elderly person or disabled individual may encounter when trying to stand-up using a chair without arms. Mr. Green says he is only asking for 5% of the chairs to be Senior and Disable friendly.
