As all of the Circus Historical Society members are now receiving their Bandwagons, they'll also find an election ballot for Trusttees of the CHS. There is also room for Write-in Candidates and JOHN PETERS has asked me to let you know he would like to be a write-in. Please vote for him. Here's a little Biography about John for those that might not know him.
I was born in 1945 (just turned 68) and raised in Peru, IN and became a circus fan at an early age. I was a performer in the Peru circus as a clown for several years and served as the youngest member of the Circus City Festival board before drafted into the U.S. Army during the Vietnam conflict. Shortly after my two years of service I married my wife, Evangelia "Lee" and we briefly lived in Indiana, New York, West Virginia and the last 13 years in Florida. In 2012, I was the Grand Marshal in the Peru circus parade. My aunt is Joanne Griebling, Otto's daughter.
I'm employed by Roebic Laboratories, Inc. or Orange, CT as Vice President Global Sales & Market Development. We have 2 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I have been a member of the CHS since around 1964 (member #1069) and also a member of CFA, CMB, and the WCA. I'm also a member of the Circus City Festival and the International Circus Hall of Fame, both located in Peru.
I'm submitting my name to be placed on the ballet to become a trustee for the CHS. I feel I have the time to offer my services and make a contribution to the CHS.
John Peters, CHS#1069
