The Williamson County Motor Patrol is always a crowd pleaser when they drive their mini-cars in parades throughout the region. WSIU InFocus visits with a dedicated group of Shriners, who use their own money to purchase the go-kart-like vehicles they drive and the trailers to haul them. We watch as they practice their routine and hear why they participate in this precision driving team. Although driving the cars is an entertaining experience, the men explain that they do it to keep their organization and the hospitals they support in the public eye. The Williamson County Shriners Club is a Masonic service organization and serves under the Ainad Temple of East St. Louis.
