Vernon's Kalamalka Caring Klowns will be spreading the fun at a workshop later this month

Learn to clown around

Experts in clowning around want to show others how to pass along the fun.

The Kalamalka Caring Klowns are therapeutic clowns who visit people in the hospital, long-term care facilities, take part in non-profit fundraisers plus have fun in various parades.

Therapeutic clowns do not wear much makeup - the less the better as they are therapeutic – but they still wear the brightly-coloured costumes.

There are therapeutic clowns world-wide helping bring some joy to the world of others.

The KCK will be holding their annual training weekend Aug. 13 and 14.

The training will be held at the People Place from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. both days.

The trainers are experienced and have been with the clowns for more than 20 years.

Anyone interested can hone Doris (Bubbles) at 250-546-6396, email [email protected], or Donna (Gizmo) at 250-558-5923 or email her at [email protected]

This workshop requires pre-registration as there are a limited number of spaces open.
