The Kora Shrine Circus will enter its 59th year in the spring of 2012. This week-long Circus is sponsored by the Kora Shriners of central and southern Maine and features 17 performances during its annual spring visit to Maine. The Kora Shrine Circus, known for its affordable family entertainment, will once again feature a two-ring circus! So make plans to attend an entertaining performance at one of the following locations near you:

The Colisee in Lewiston on April 13 and 14

Cumberland County Civic Center in Portland on April 16, 17 and 18

Augusta Civic Center on April 20 and 21.

We look forward to seeing you there!

The Maine Shrine Lobster Bowl Classic was brought to life some 24 years ago by a group of Shriners looking for a better way to spread the word about Shriners Hospitals for Children and the expert medical care provided without regard to the ability of a patient or family to pay. This All-Star football game, pitting the best graduating high school student athletes from all over the state along with the finest graduating senior cheerleaders, will be played this year on Saturday, July 21 at Waterhouse Field, Biddeford. The student-athletes participate in a week-long training camp each year, with the players at Hebron Academy and Central Maine Community College in Auburn hosting the cheerleaders. A golf tournament starts the week off on Saturday, July 14, this year to be held at the Turner Highlands Country Club in Turner. All of the net proceeds from this event benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children which to date has raised over $400,000 for the hospitals.

Make plans to attend this premier high school sporting event and see why “Strong legs run so that Weak legs may walk.”
