“CLOWNING” means happiness and laughter to many people. Clowns add much color and enjoyment to parades, community events, and promotional activities. Clowns interact with the audience as they wave, perform antics, and make personal visits with many people, no matter the age. School functions, banquets, parties, style reviews, and mall days are other events in which a clown can become involved. Clowns support organizations by providing information and publicity for their service projects. Children and families are delighted to have a clown lead them in games and activities at birthday celebrations, reunions, and parties. Clowns also receive personal satisfaction as they bring a bit of cheer to hospital patients, homebound persons,and residents of convalescent homes. Whether or not your clown club decides to be a service club, performing club, promotional club, or a combination, there are plenty of ways to involve everyone.
