Bring Your Shovel to the Circus

Free, mineral-rich fertilizer will be available in gargantuan proportions at the Kelly Miller Circus Friday, October 6th and Saturday, October 7th.

Sponsored by Boeshans and Company Builders, the circus manure is high-quality due the the varied diets of the animals. Circus staff advise leaving the manure outside in the sun for a few weeks in order for the sun and the rain to weather it. Within a few weeks, it becomes odorless compost fit for plant consumption. Those interested in this free opportunity, bring your shovel, buckets, muckers and look for the Boeshans and Company Builder sign on the lot directly across from R.P. Lumber, 7700 Plummer Business Drive.
