SEND IN THE CLOWNS You can't go wrong with clowns. As has become a tradition, clowns who were part of last week's annual Shrine Circus in Minot took time to visit and entertain residents of Trinity Homes of Minot. Dizzy, Bubbles, Dirty, Silly Goose and others mingled with the residents of the nursing home, twisting balloons into requested shapes and providing an afternoon of general silliness and fun. Dizzy, also known as Ken Gillespie of Minot, said he and the other clowns are proud to be part of the Shrine Circus, which serves as a fundraiser for the 22 Shrine Hospitals in the United States. And they should be proud. The clowns' annual visit to the nursing home elicits laughter and smiles from everyone who attends, which in itself makes the event worthwhile. The fact that it raises awareness for the Shrine Circus and the work that Shrine Hospitals do makes all the more rewarding. Keep up the good work.
