People’s Clinic For Better Health Benefits From Irish Tea

The 12th Annual Irish Tea, held March 13, 2019 and hosted by the Daughters of Isabella (Emmett and Marine City), was a great success according to organizers, raising just over $2,400 to benefit the Peoples’ Clinic for Better Health. The People’s Clinic for Better Health is a non-profit clinic that provides medical care to under and/or uninsured residents of St. Clair County and surrounding areas. The care team services individuals 18 years or older, those who have Medicaid and/or Medicare insurance and individuals who receive services through St. Clair County Community Mental Health with physical health care needs.  Organizers say the Irish Tea,  provides the community the opportunity to connect with others, drink tea, sample delicious homemade cookies and participate in the popular basket raffles, all while supporting the Peoples’ Clinic.  In cooperation with The Lake Huron Medical Foundation this fundraiser allows the Peoples’ Clinic to continue its mission of caring for the most vulnerable members of our community.  Presenting the check are (left to right): Marilyn Dunn (Marine City), JoAnn Waters (Emmett), Elgia Wessel (Emmett), Wynne Achatz (Marine City), Karen Barber (People’s Clinic for Better Health), Paula Carnaghi (People’s Clinic for Better Health), Chandra Gruber (Lake Huron Foundation), Peg Clark (Emmett), Angie Lademer (People’s Clinic for Better Health), Peggy Krueger (Marine City), and Mary Anne Vermeesch (Emmett).  For more information on the programs and events at Lake Huron Medical Center, please visit
