The Day the Circus Came to Town

2015-08-26 16.10.01The Wonderful folks at Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus stopped by and made the best first day of school ever. Members were treated to performances by the world famous Ringling Brothers clowns, jugglers, acrobats and professional stunt bicycle riders.

The program is aimed at getting kids out on bikes, by educating them about the benefits to their health and the well being of the environment when you choose a bike instead of a car.

Four lucky members won bikes donated by Ringling Brothers, and all the members in attendance received free tickets to the Circus.
