The Devon Legion building never had barrier free access to the basement lounge which is where much of the social activity occurs within the Devon Legion. The Devon Legion 2019 Executive with approval from the General Membership made a great decision to invest in and install a "Stair Lift Chair" from the building main front entrance to the lower level basement lounge. The "Stair Lift Chair" allows for those members and guests with mobility concerns easy access to and from the lounge other than walking up and down the original stairs. Detailed below are a series of photographs showing the installation project of a new "Stair Lift Chair" for the Devon Legion Lounge. The "Stair Lift Chair" used at the Devon Legion is the STAIRFRIEND designed and installed by SAVARIA. The wearing of face masks in the later pictures is a result of the world wide COVID-19 Pandemic in 2020.
