THE PEOPLE SPEAK — Proud of Gaines’ good work for city

Hats off to Cassandra Gaines for her accomplishments and contribution she has and continues to make to Muskogee.

She has been honored and received accolades on the state level in the area of art and has definitely been instrumental in bringing forms of entertainment to our city, much needed. She has promoted activities for our children in the form of movies at the Roxy Theater. Our annual Soul Food Cook Off was inspired by her and has been a great success.

She recently sponsored free entertainment on behalf of Black Music Month at our Civic Center, which was enjoyed by many.

She plans an annual event that provides a bus tour of the black towns in our area and each town has a representative that provides the history of the town, which is quite an educational experience.

Simply wanted to give Cassandra Gaines some additional recognition for her many accomplishments. Keep up the good work, we are proud of you.
