Show Folks February 2019 Newsletter

Hello Show Folks!

Our annual Banquet and Ball weekend was a great success! I am told about 40 people attended the Memorial Service in Colma on Friday. The service was nice and the repairs were done, the cemetery looked great. Ron Quint got us an American Flag and the Show Folks flag were both flying high!

Past President's party was attended by several Past Presidents on Friday night at Thunder Valley Casino in Lincoln. Saturday night's big event was exciting, the entertainment was a lot of fun featuring a Contortionist and a Giant Ring Dancer. After the professional entertainment, the "Carny Kids" in attendance entertained us with their interpretation of the contortionist and dances of their own. 

Past President Gordy Johnston and his beautiful wife, Tina won EVERYTHING! 

All three prizes of the president's project tickets as well as the seller on all three! Then when the ticket for President Eva Mason's Special Project, the Carousel Horse was drawn, Tina's name was on it as well! They were both thrilled to the max, to say the least. But I must also add that they sold more tickets than anyone else in the whole club!

Then on Sunday morning the 2019 Officers were installed by Sam Johnston. Your 2019 Officers are:

President: Tom Eachus

First Vice President:  Gena Tuttle

Second Vice President: Matt  Payne

Third Vice President: Tina Johnston

Treasurer: Marta Quinn
