The Circus is a year round process and we will be offering Units and Clubs Early Bird Special Doubling the Circus commission from 10% to 20% (based on net proceeds) for collections received at the Ararat business office before May 31, 2017. So what this means is you can make more money for your Unit or Club by getting in your Circus Monies by the end of MAY to make double % money for your Unit or Club! So let’s all try and sell as many Circus ads and collect as much Circus money as possible to make your Unit or Club as much money as possible and make the Circus a bigger success in 2017. If each Shriner sold only one $125 business card ad with 2000+ Shriners our 2018 Circus Book would be twice the size it was for 2016. Don’t be afraid to ask your business friends to take out an ad, just remind them what we do as Shriners for KIDS!! How could they say NO??
