The Sheridan Kiwanis Club is entering the planning stage of their undertaking to bring the Cullpepper & Merriweather Circus to Sheridan for the entertainment and enjoyment of all. The circus will be here on Thursday, May 24 and tickets will be available from any Kiwanis member. In addition to Kiwanis members, the club is hoping to have several other volunteers from the community roll up their sleeves and help out.

Kiwanis helps kids around the world. Local clubs look out for their communities and the international organization takes on large-scale challenges, such as fighting disease and poverty. Kiwanis members are generous with their time, creative with their ideas and passionate about making a difference.

For more than a century, Kiwanis has created opportunities for children to be curious, safe and healthy regardless of the community in which they live. When you give a child the chance to learn, experience, dream, grow, succeed and thrive, great things can happen. Each community has different needs, and Kiwanis empowers members to pursue creative ways to serve the needs of children through local service projects and fundraising.

Sheridan Kiwanis has a formal meeting at 6 p.m. on the first Wednesday of each month in the Community Room of the Sheridan Public Library. If you would like further information about Kiwanis and its charitable community activities, please contact any Kiwanis member.
