**Sadness! I never got to see the circus. This is completely the end of an era and a great loss. Also a sadness for the conservation center-hope they can find an alternative means of funding or what will happen to the poor elephants there. Great shout-outs to all the great members of the circus group and all the joy they brought audiences for years. You were seriously a part of the American culture!
