YESTERDAY'S TOWNS

HOWDY, MY NAME IS BILL STRONG, I'LL BE YOUR "24 HOUR MAN", ROUTING YOU INTO THE PAST TO SEE WHAT THE CIRCUS WAS IN DAYS GONE BY. IF YOU'RE LIKE ME, AND MISS WHAT IT USED TO BE, THEN COME ON ALONG AS WE GO DOWN THE ROAD FOLLOWING THE ARROWS BACKWARDS, TO "YESTERDAY'S TOWNS"! IF YOU HAVE CIRCUS RELATED PICTURES YOU WOULD LIKE POSTED, SEND THEM TO,,,,yesterday1@verizon.net,,,,AND WE WILL TRY TO FIT THEM IN. "24 HOUR MAN" WILL HAVE THE FINAL DECISION ON POSTING.

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!

~FROM SUSIE O'BRIEN MORE FROM THE WREATH LAYING~

Elephant wreath laying & luncheon a hugh success with over 175 in attendance (maybe 200 my sister stopped counting). These photos were taken by an old friend in his late 70's and was his first time using his digital camera. He brought me the prints @ 1:00pm just three hours after the the event. Four TV stations here and four newspapers. Also Atlantic Broadband did a taping for the Blair County Historical Society, plus many in the crowd did tapings. So I will get more coverage on this event coming to me.
Enjoy!
Susie O'Brien
