The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus is coming to Stevensville on Friday, June 24, and Skeeter the Clown made an early appearance at the Bitterroot Valley Living Center Monday. While there, she ‘clowned’ around with some of the residents. Pictured are Esther Morton, Harriet Coats, Cora Cochran, Skeeter, Dale Speake and Grace Schara. The circus will have two performances on Friday at the corner of Middle Burnt Fork Road and Park Street, east of Stevensville. Show times are 5 and 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at many businesses in and around Stevensville and will also be available at the gate. The event is sponsored by the Stevensville Main Street Association. Jean Schurman photo.
