Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

68th Annual Jaffa Shrine Circus opens today at 11:00 AM in Altoona, PA..Struppi Hanneford has a fantastic show lined up for the seven day run. Presently its snowing and very cold. Ticket sales are big and ads feature the tiger in beautiful colors.This is one Shrine that still do it right..If you haven't seen or worked the JAFFA date you are missing something.

James Hamid is one of our May 21-25 Hershey CFA Convention Seminar Speakers. He has resigned Harrisburg for 2008. Thanks Joanne for these Hamid pictures.

Miss Joanne,

Even Hamid's STEEL PIER, the destination for million of day-trippers to Atlantic City, didn't make it through four generations. And it was made out of STEEL!

Mr and Mrs. America and scores of boating enthusiasts are anxious to know: what is your secret for preventing "dock rot" below the water line?

You should be listed in the program as: Joanne Wilson, the original Energizer Bunny!

p.s. It was very nice to meet you again in Gibtown last January.
