Big top coming to Auxvasse
Circus to put on benefit show for community hall

Auxvasse, MO — A popular circus act that helps in fundraising efforts for local communities has returned to Callaway.
The Kelly Miller Circus, an Oklahoma-based group founded in 1938 that has performed in recent years in New Bloomfield, returns to put on a fundraiser show Oct. 17 for the Auxvasse Community Hall.
Show times are at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. at the Auxvasse Lions Club Grounds. Advance tickets cost $10 for adults and $6 for children, or $15 for adults and $7 for children at the door.
Tickets can be bought at United Security Bank or Casey’s General Store in Auxvasse, Hickman’s IGA in Mexico, Pick-A-Dilly in Kingdom City or Moser’s in Fulton.
Auxvasse Community Hall Association treasurer Dianna Huls said the circus had approached the community hall committee about putting on the show. A portion of the ticket sales will go to restoration of the city’s community hall, which is rented out for various events.
“It needs lots of repairs, it’s a really old building,” said Huls. “The first thing is the roof, it’s leaky. Then we’d like to get a new stove, also, but we have to get the roof fixed first.”
