Dancing Elephants, Leaping Tigers
A traveling circus was brought to the new hospital site on East Hill Road, with part of the profits going to the building fund. I'll admit, I was a little surprised to see the advertising posters include exotic animals as part of the entertainment. I thought that kind of circus was a thing of the past. I much prefer to see the human acrobatics type of shows. I simply didn't attend this one on that basis. But various activists wrote letters to the newspapers and community blogs with their concerns, and these two folks indicated their support of non-animal circuses by displaying signs to people arriving to the evening's show.
