Circus coming to Basehor will benefit Chamber
 
Skeeter, an "Advance Clown" from the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus, performs during an assembly at Basehor Intermediate School on Tuesday with students Luke Oliver and Gabby Benson. Skeeter visited Basehor-Linwood schools in advance of the circus's stop in Basehor next week, which will benefit the Basehor Chamber of Commerce.

The circus is coming to Basehor, and anyone who buys a ticket will not only receive a seat under the big top but also help spread the word about the city to potential new residents.
The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus will stop by Basehor for two shows Monday, sponsored by the Basehor Chamber of Commerce. The big top will go up in the vacant lot just west of Orscheln’s Farm and Home on Wolf Creek Parkway, and shows are set for 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
The show will feature trapeze and high-wire acts, jungle cats and a variety of performers. It also will serve as a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce, which will use the proceeds to help publish a new promotional brochure for the city.
“We decided this might be a good fundraiser and good for the community, and the kids might enjoy it, so yeah, we’re in,” said Blake Waters, the chamber’s president.
