Thanks for community support of circus

Send a link to a friend

Dear Editor:

We at Zion Lutheran School would like to thank the many people who made the Carson & Barnes Circus on July 8 a tremendous success. Special thanks to Chris Graue and his team for their continued community support by again serving as major sponsor for the circus and for giving away a free TV in a drawing of circus tickets turned in at the dealership. Thanks also to the 30 Lincoln/Logan County area ticket outlets that sold advance tickets for us.

This year's show threw us a curveball with the weather system that arrived just before the first show. Fortunately, with the fine emergency services Lincoln and Logan County are afforded, everything ran smoothly. Dan Fulscher, Logan County Emergency Management Agency director, had the foresight to develop a plan in case of inclement weather, which was executed flawlessly. Chris Harding and Mark Miller from the Lincoln Fire Department were able to assist in a medical emergency that saved a man's life. Lincoln-Logan Ambulance, Lincoln Fire Department and Lincoln Police Department are also to be commended for a job well done.

Lastly, thanks to the fine folks of Lincoln and Logan County who supported the circus by coming out to enjoy the family entertainment it offered.


Doug Sheley
Circus chairman
Zion Lutheran School
