The South Brunswick Lions Club is sponsoring the Zerbini Family Circus’s appearance at Crossroads Middle School South on May 14 and 15, according to the Lion’s Club website.
Advance tickets are $9 and available at Pierre’s Restaurant on Georges Road and Confectionately Yours restaurant on Route 27 in Franklin, according to the website. Tickets can be purchased at the event for $9, and the shows are at 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Saturday and 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. on Sunday, according to the website.
”Every year in May we bring a circus to town,” Barbara Hendrickson, who is treasurer of the South Brunswick Lions Club and who runs the circus event, said.
Ms. Hendrickson said the circus features horses, dogs, camels, and a buffalo. According to the circus’s website, there will also be high flyers and jugglers as well.
Money raised at this annual fundraiser will go towards the Lion’s Club sight projects that include eye exams and glasses as well as anything that helps residents that are blind, six $500 scholarships for township high school students, and to help the town’s rescue squads as well, Ms. Hendrickson said. The Lion’s Club has sponsored a circus in the community for about eight or nine years, and has sponsored the event with the Zerbini Family Circus for about five years, Ms. Hendrickson said.
The Zerbini Family Circus has acts that are more geared toward children, and that people enjoy it, she said.
Lion’s Club International is the largest service organization in the world and was founded in 1917, according to the South Brunswick Lions website. There are more than 46,000 clubs in 194 countries with 1.35 million members, according to the website.
