The Route 66 Cruizers pose with Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan and dozens of gifts the club bought after pulling names off the Mohave County Sheriff's Angel Tree. The Sheriff's Office works with the Salvation Army to collect and distribute donated toys to area children for Christmas. The Cruizers have selected 15 to 20 names from the tree for the last 11 years. "The club really strives on giving to our community," said Cruizers president John Somplack. "This is where we live and this is our community. This year, club members also wanted to do something for the elderly because they often go without. They will be assisting elderly folks at the Desert Highlands in Kingman." For club inquiries, contact Somplack at (928) 303-0073 or Pauline Rowe at (928) 692-5122.
