Circus to serve as fundraiser in Baldwin City
By Elvyn Jones
August 15, 2012
To the Baldwin City Recreation Commission and Chamber of Commerce officials, a circus and school organization seemed like a natural partnership.
At the suggestions of the two organizations, the Baldwin Community Service Organization will have as a back-to-school fundraiser a visit from the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, said Michelle Patterson, CSO president.
“I’ve heard they wanted to get the circus here for some time but no one seemed interested,” she said. “It’s nice to get it in here.”
The big-top, one-ring circus will have shows at 5 and 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 30, at the ball field complex on Bull Pup Drive south of the Baldwin Elementary School Intermediate Center.
“My kids and I saw the circus in Ottawa,” Patterson said. “We loved it. It has some animals, clowns, acrobats, face painting — it’s a real kid-friendly kind of thing.”
Children and circus-loving adults can get an advanced taste of the circus next Wednesday when Skeeter the Clown visits Baldwin City. She will start her day in the community at 8 a.m. at Baldwin City Market, move at 9 a.m. to Vintage Park and spend 10 to 11 a.m. at the Baldwin City Library for its Storytime event.
