Fun and Frolic
The Egypt Shrine Clowns
About UsEgypt Shrine's Fun N' Frolic clown Dash found his true self in 2012 and has been enjoying the funny business ever since. When asked how I came up with the name Dash I like to say my name represents all of the fun times between the year you're born and the year you pass, and reminds me to enjoy those times as much as possible! I became a clown because it gives us the opportunity to truly make a difference in the lives of the children we support as Shriners. I love to see people smile and there's no better reward than to know you've brightened someone's day and made them happy. When the clown face goes on the world is a brighter more exciting place and what more could one ask for?
All ClownsHi I am MooCow. A fun fact about my clown name is that I have been called MooCow since I was a baby. My real name is Michael and during baby talk with my Dad he started calling me MooCow. Growing up I asked him not to call me that in front of my friends but in high school my cousins and close friends started calling me it also and then it just seemed to grow. Since then, everywhere I go, I am simply known as MooCow, for example, I am a Coast Guard Veteran and some guys at the station didn’t even know my real name when my wife called one night asking for Michael.
About UsBoots was once asked by the most recognizable of all Clowns in the world, “Ronald McDonald” at a parade "Boots why did you become a Clown?" I begin to tell him the story of my wife Michelle and her battle with cancer, which she eventually lost, and how sick she became with it, and how sick one of my Boy Scouts had become around that same time, and how she needed to help his family. With all the time the parents were spending at the hospital, this left little time at home for meals for the others, so she had me load her in the car as sick as she was, and drive her to the store and buy groceries for this boy's family, so they could have meals to eat. That little bit of help brought the largest smile to everyone faces that day. the lesson I learned was it doesn't matter how bad your day is, or going, somebody has it far worse than you will ever have it, and that's why I became a Clown!
