Thorndale Area Chamber of Commerce sponsored Skeeter the Clown in an informative program at both the Thorndale Elementary and the St. Paul Lutheran School in Thorndale on Oct. 2. Skeeter spoke to the students at both schools regarding the history of the circus and the acts the students will see when the circus comes to Thorndale on Monday, Oct. 14.

While teaching the students facts about the circus, Skeeter also entertained them with magic tricks and even taught selected students the art of balancing a peacock feather on their finger. For performing the balancing act to perfection, two lucky students at each school were given a free ticket to the circus.

The first performance will be at 5 p.m. and the second one will begin at 7:30 p.m. Bring your friends and family and join in the fun for an amazing and entertaining evening of thrills and laughs.
