A banner year

Circus World Museum staff spent Monday morning at the corner of Third and Oak in downtown Baraboo removing a 30-year-old mural celebrating the history of the Ringling Bros. Circus. They then put up a new mural, sponsored by Baraboo National Bank, that celebrates the circus' 130th anniversary. Scott O'Donnell, Dave SaLoutos, Harold "Heavy" Burdick" and Tristan Crist did the work.
