Friendly Encounters

This is a weekly feature highlighting friends who have met celebs.

I have featured John Schenk a few times before.  John recently celebrated a milestone in his business.  Schenk and Show Me State Signatures just celebrated one year in business.  John started the business when he was just 16!
I really am impressed with John.  Aside from being a great young businessman, he is also concerned about his community.  He's very well-rounded and he has a bright future.  Just remember, you read it hear first.
Show Me State Signatures has some great signings in the near future.  Ken Reitz (Nov. 13), Stan Musial and Red Schoendienst (Nov. 15), Kyle McClellan (Jan. 15) and Jim Edmonds (Feb. 14) are all on the schedule, but you should check the site for full details.
On the topic of great signings, below is a picture from a signing John had with Jack "the Ripper" Clark, who John described as a class act.  I lamented the fact that despite years of rumors of Clark coming to the Cubs, the trade never happened.
Thanks to John for sharing this and all of the other pictures.  Most of all, congratulations to him on his one year milestone.  I think John will experience many great milestones in the years ahead.
