Show Folks July Newsletter

I hope this newsletter finds you having an amazing season so far.  Everyone is extremely busy so I will make this short.

We have lost a couple dear friends that we have lost already this year.  Roger Allen, a long time food operator for Butler passed away. We are sad to announce Gerald Corliss, a long time Butler truck driver recently passed away.  Lori Nunemaker and Kelly McNaughton could use some healing prayers at this time.  Mary Rhodes had surgery earlier this year and is doing well.   We have some Show Folks members that could use our prayers at this time.

Hello Show Folks!

Those of you that did not attend this past weekend’s festivities really missed a good one! The venue was beautiful as it was held at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in the heart of San Francisco. The weather did not cooperate but those that attended made the best of it. Friday night was the Past President’s Party. We planned for 25-30 people but I think there were closer to 125 there! It was a huge turnout and everyone had a nice time honoring our Past Presidents.

Members enjoyed the City on Saturday. The Cable Cars passed right in front of the hotel and several people braved the rain and went down to Fisherman’s Wharf for the clam chowder, sourdough bread and fresh seafood available there.

Saturday night was the Annual Banquet and Ball honoring 2016 President Nicole Martinez. Sean Butler did a great job as emcee for the night. There was a nice band during dinner and after, dinner a DJ took over for the dancing. Dinner was steak or chicken and Cherries Jubilee for dessert. The event was black tie and everyone was “dressed to the nines”. The turnout was huge! The dance floor was busy all night. The highlight of the evening was the drawings for the project tickets. The pot this year was the largest I have seen for several years.

Vanessa Payne, Gena Perl and Linda Davison shared the first-place prize of $5,087,00 plus they shared the sellers prize of $500.00

Emma Rosales won second prize of $2,519.00 and First Vice-President, Eva Mason got the sellers prize of $300.00

Third prize and seller went to Greg and Andrea Jewell in the amounts of $2,015.00 and $200.00.

President Nicole Martinez did a special project. She sold 17 tickets at $1,000.00 each. Bobby Ellis was the big winner of $10,000.00! Congratulations to all the winners!

Remember you can’t win without having a ticket! Seller also wins! If you need tickets to purchase or to sell, feel free to contact us through the website, or contact President Tami Quint at: butlerbuny@aol.com or 209-261-3645.

Sunday, we had a yummy breakfast buffet followed by the Installation of our 2017 Officers. Past President, Lance Moyer swore in the 2017 Officers: 

  • President: Tami Quint

  • First Vice President: Eva mason

  • Second Vice President: Tom Eachus

  • Third Vice President: Gena Tuttle

  • Treasurer" Marta Quinn

  • Recording Secretary: Linda Davisson

Several members then drove over to Colma for a Memorial. It was raining, the wind was blowing and it was storming! Several of us braved the storm and went out under the tents that were put up for the occasion. We had a quick prayer and got out of the weather. Surprising that it was one of the best turnouts we have had in the past few years! The weekend was a huge success and the turnout was one of the best we’ve had!

For several months, a special committee has been working on revising the Show Folk’s constitution and by-laws. The final draft can be read on the Show Folk’s website. Showfolksofamerica.com. Gail Johnston has put in a lot of hours of hard work typing the changes. We are asking that all members go on the website and read the by-laws and if anyone has any concerns or objections about anything, please attend the next meeting onJanuary 31, 2017 in Lodi to voice those concerns. We will be voting to approve these changes at that meeting.

Make a note on your calendars to attend the next meeting at which we will also assemble a nominating committee for the 2018 Third Vice-President. The meeting will be onJanuary 31, 2017 at the Lodi Festival Grounds. Board of Director’s meeting will start at 5 pm. Catered dinner at 6 pm and general meeting at 7 pm. Bring a dessert and raffle prize or two.

See you all there!
