"Tony Steele and Paula Blackwelder presented a wonderful program to the members of the Northeast Polk County Historical Society, Inc. Program included a video of Steele's legendary exploits as a trapeze artist and a personal interview telling about his colorful life. We also enjoyed hearing about our own Haines City gal, Paula Blackwelder's career as a trapeze artist.
