As a child care worker for the Penrickton Center for the Blind in Taylor, Jessica Ball knows how important contributions from the Plymouth Lions Club are to the center's operation.
On Tuesday, she and some of her kids from the center got a chance to witness up-close where those contributions come from.
Ball was one of some 900 people who attended the first performance Tuesday of the Kelly Miller circus, sponsored for two shows by the Plymouth Lions Club. And she was glad to be there.
“It's very important for the kids to get out,” Ball said. “They get to experience different things they may not get to experience otherwise.”

What they witnessed was Kelly Miller's brand of circus, which featured elephants, horses, llamas, camels, clowns and international circus stars as Kelly Miller celebrates its 74th year.
The Plymouth stop is part of a 10,000-mile journey that will see the circus perform in some 200 cities through October.
The performances act as a fund-raiser for the Plymouth Lions, who use the proceeds they earn to fund their outreach programs, including their efforts in partnership with the Penrickton Center.
