Cruis’n Angels

Proceeds from the 15th annual Cruis’n Angels/BancFirst Car Show, along with Oriental Lodge Masonic Lodge #430, are being presented their largest check in the 15 years of existence to Good Shepherd Health Clinic of Muskogee. Cruis’n Angels President Joe Schmidgall presented a check for $11,500 to Good Shepherd Health Clinic President Marilyn Gilder surrounded by clinic volunteers and club members.

None of it would have been possible without the help from the club’s sponsors. The club of 54 members worked diligently contacting sponsors who opened their hearts and checkbooks to help.

The Good Shepherd Health Clinic is run totally by volunteers, giving health care to patients with no insurance coverage and no means of medical attention.
