Roamin Angels earn another award

The Union staff

For the second straight year, the Roamin Angels car club has been honored for its community service through the 13th annual Eagle One Golden Rule Awards.

The Roamin Angels host an annual car show, the most recent drawing more than 600 cars, that help fund the community service projects the group undertakes each year.

The Angels, which was first formed in 1962, were named the Runner-up in the Western Region of the annual awards event. The Burbank Road Kings was named the region’s overall winner.

“We are a car club, but we also have a community conscience,” said Ron Cherry, president of the Roamin Angels. “It’s not our primary reason for existence, but we do like to give back to the community.

“The car show is more than to just show off our cars.”

Some of the beneficiaries of the Roamin Angels’ generosity include the Salvation Army, the Friendship club, the Cancer Center at Sierra Nevada Memorial Hospital, the Community Senior Center, Grass Valley firefighters, Nevada Union High School softball and wrestling teams, NUHS band, local Boy Scout and Girl Scout troops, AnimalSave, the Lifetime Foundation and the Literacy Council of Nevada County.

In addition to the car show, the Roamin Angels also assist the Salvation Army’s bell-ringing program and host a toy drive during the holiday season.
