Merriconeag's Magic Matinee Program: Host Children-in-Need to Attend the Circus: There are over 700 children awaiting full or partial sponsorship through our Magic Matinee Program. Kids from Make-a-Wish, A Company of Girls, Big Brother/Sister of Bath & Brunswick, Military Families through the National Guard in Augusta, Freeport Community Services and several summer camp programs are relying upon help to make it to the Big Top. For every child’s ticket ($18), you’re helping to keep the dream alive! Please contact Mary Martin @207/749-5802 to take the joy of Smirkus far beyond the ring.
