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.  

We have a date for this year’s banquet and ball weekend:

My presidents project Golf Cart is so beautiful.  I have sold out all of my Golf Cart project tickets already.  Tom Stroud’s company CIPPONERI GOLF CARTS IN LODI made this little beauty extra special.  They donated $1,500.00 in labor for us.  The total for the golf cart was over $7000.   Even added a nice “There’s No Business Like Show Business” decal.    For all your golf cart needs call Javier Pacheco @ (209) 625-7088.  They’re located at 932 E. Victor Suite #A in Lodi  

I hope everyone has a safe and prosperous rest of the season.  Until next time
