Behind the Scenes at the Show-Me State Games
Winslow's church, Fairview United Methodist, has been in charge of all Show-Me State Games souvenirs for the past 17 years. She supervises the folding, counting and supplying of all merchandise to vendors, thanks to her close friend.
"She just gradually, unbeknownst to me, was training me to take her job," recalled Winslow. "We all just volunteer, and whoever comes in, that's who we work with that day."
Susan Burpo said, "Without Norma, we couldn't exist because, if the merchandise isn't in an orderly fashion, well-counted from the beginning, the end process won't work well."
But, Winslow warned that someone else in the church will have to step up to the challenge eventually.
"I am looking to pass it on, pass the torch so to speak, to someone else at some point," she admitted.
Fairview United Methodist Church uses the money from souvenir sales for mission trips and other activities.
