The Dalton Lions Club has been overwhelmed with requests from the six Berkshire County service agencies for this year’s circus program. Through the sponsorship of area businesses, children and families from the agencies are given tickets to the circus.

This year’s event will take place Saturday and Sunday, July 12 and 13, at the Dalton American Legion field with shows at 2 and 5 p.m. each day.

Another $2,000 is needed. All donations are tax deductible as the Lions Club is a nonprofit agency. Those wishing to help can send a donation to Dalton Lions Charities, 36 Claremont Road, Dalton, MA 01226-2009.

A Lion member can also pick up a donation; call Dan at (413) 842-5212.

All Lions Clubs in Berkshire County are seeking new members. For more information, call Andy at (413) 281-4844.
