The expense-free trip was sponsored by the Algona members of the Kossuth Shrine Club, who, with their wives, were chaperones. Mr. and Mrs. Alfred Schultz are shown above, ready to board their bus. The buses left the parking lot at the Algona High School at 9:15 and all attended the circus in the Veterans' Auditorium at 1:30 p.m. Each child was wearing a shiny red paper "fez" and took a sack lunch to eat before going to the circus. Arrangements had been made for the caravan to stop at the rest area north of Ames on the return trip, where a group of Algonans met them with their picnic- style evening meal. This was the first trip to a circus for many of the children who were returned to Algona early in the evening. Frank Saiter heads the Kossuth Shrine Club and Dwaine Lighter was chairman of the circus project.
