The President and CEO of the historic Eli Bridge Company of Jacksonville, Illinois, Patty Sullivan builds ferris wheels and serves the industry. She has been a board member of the Outdoor Amusement Business Association, an ASTM (ride safety regulations) committee chairperson, teacher at safety seminars across the nation, produced a children's safety video, organizes and sings at the Showmen's League memorial service, and presents the National Anthem at our annual banquet and ball with flourish. Patty holds bachelor and master's degrees from Western Illinois University, Macomb, Illinois.



Father John is famously known as the Carnival Priest, recognized by the Pope as minister to itinerant show people in North America. He is a graduate of Loras College, Dubuque, Iowa, and the Aquinas Institute of Theology. In addition to his work with show folks, Father John has always had responsibility for local churches, mostly in Iowa, and now, as he enters semi-retirement, in Florida. Father John has been officiating masses, funerals, baptisms and counseling to carnival workers for almost five decades, and performs the swearing-in ceremony for officers at the League's annual meeting.



The Showmen's League Hall of Honor was initiated in 2004, a program started to recognize significant accomplishments by iconic members and associates (not including Past Presidents), with the intention of preserving and promoting the history of our 103 year old fraternal organization.
