THE CIRCUS IS COMMING TO STAMFORD, CT

Editor's note: The following is an installment of a monthly column by first-year Stamford Mayor Michael Pavia, featured only in The Stamford Times.*
I will never forget how excited I felt as a kid when they announced that the circus was coming to town. Images of huge khaki tents, bright colors, dancing elephants, smells of hay, hotdogs and popcorn and the sound of what I can only recall as an organ grinder's circus music filled my memory. My brothers and I began badgering our parents as soon as we heard the news: "Will you take us to the circus? Will you take us to the circus?"
Well, every once in awhile, I get to have fun as mayor of Stamford, and this is one of those times: Ladies and Gentlemen, The fabulous Big Apple Circus is coming to town!
The Big Apple Circus will entertain thousands, help promote the Mill River Park Restoration project and enliven an already lively downtown Stamford for 16 days from July 9 to July 25. The mayor's office will be presenting a very special program, a Stamford Community Day performance of the Big Apple Circus, on July 13 at 7 p.m. And thanks to corporate sponsorship, tickets will be donated for that entire show. Half of the tickets for the show will be given to families who are engaged in the city's social services network and who might not otherwise be able to enjoy this spectacular event. The other half of the tickets will be given out through a volunteer program called Give in Service - See the Circus on a first come first serve basis to Stamford residents who volunteer service time at participating agencies throughout the city.
