MARION — Members of the Boys & Girls Club of Marion County were able to attend the Shriners circus held at the Ohio Expo Center in Columbus recently.
The Marion Shriners Chapter paid for the tickets, snacks and souvenirs and the Marion Kiwanis stepped up to pay for the transportation to and from the circus, according to a news release.
“Because of the generosity of the Shriners and Kiwanis, 58 Boys & Girls Club members had an experience they will remember for a lifetime,” said Maggie Breeding, program director of the local club. “The kids are still talking about the trip.”
Boys & Girls Club members who attended had to earn their spot on the trip through club attendance, participation in club programming, and behavior while at the club.
