The Clowns are one of the smallest, busiest, and most active Units of El Bekal. They serve at the will and pleasure of the Potentate. They participate in Shrine functions, parades, ceremonials, Unit and Club activities, and various private appearances as requested through the Shrine.
Each individual provides his own costume and make-up. They do not have to have prior clowning experience to become a member they just have the desire to put a smile on a child’s face and spread happiness & goodwill to all. Any member of the Clown Unit will gladly help you develop a clown character, costume and make-up.
They meet on the third Monday of each month for a combined business and dinner meeting. The Initiation Fee is $25.00 and the Annual Dues are $15.00
