Ribbon Cutting at Sailor Circus for Junior League Improvements



The Junior League of Sarasota held a ribbon-cutting ceremony at Sailor Circus Sarasota this past weekend to commemorate the completion of recent improvements. The League’s New Member Class of 2017-18 has dedicated its time and resources to breathe new life into the grounds of Sarasota’s beloved Sailor Circus, a pillar in the local arts community that provides after-school circus training to students ages 8 to 18. The New Member class set out to refresh small buildings with repairs and a new coat of paint, updated landscaping, added outdoor seating and some whimsy with circus silhouettes and a new color scheme using Sailor Circus’s blue and white and the signature Junior League red. The New Member Class raised the majority of funds needed for the project with a fundraiser held at McCurdy’s Comedy Theatre on February 7. Sponsors of the project include TJ’s Landscaping & Tree Service, Sherwin Williams, Snider’s Painting and Home Wood Craft. The Junior League of Sarasota is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving the community through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers. Its purpose is exclusively educational and charitable.
