HANNEFORD FIRE


FROM: TERRY PARKINSON10/16/2011


CIRCUS COMMUNITY AND FANS:


I was with STRUPPI HANNEFORD today. She asked me to notify everyone that a car veered off U. S. 41 TAMIAMI TRAIL headed south towards Venice, FL. The car crossed over the median, continued across the large field and crashed through the back two Florida Rooms of the house and caught fire. The two back rooms are completely destroyed. With the exception of a few pieces..., all of the CIRCUS MEMORABALIA and contents of the two rooms were destroyed. The main part of the home is OK except for smoke.THANKFULLY, NO ONE WAS IN THE BACK ROOMS WHEN THIS HAPPENED.If you have any quality photos of Struppi, Tommy, Kay, Nellie or vintage photos of the riding Hannefords, Struppi would appreciate it if you would help to rebuild the HANNEFORD COLLECTION. In addition Struppi would appreciate it if anyone has quality video of her TAJANA aerial and cat acts. Struppi would also like to have a video of her 80th birthday held at the BIG E. She told us that it was one of the best days of her life.All photos can be sent to Peter Rosa at rosapj@AOL.com This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or you can post to your facebook page. If you post to your FB page, please notify Peter that you have posted them and please put them in an album titled HANNEFORD. I will go to your photo area and copy from there.
