Skeeter “thee” Clown stopped by the summer reading program at Grangeville Public Library last Thursday, June 11, to show the kids a few bits of circus tradition. She performed a magic trick, played a slide whistle and flute at the same time, and, for the big finish, brought two participants out of the audience to take part in a balancing act.
