In between sunning themselves by the pool, the clowns will attend educational classes, participate in competitions, meetings, and enjoy socialising, while also taking part in a humanitarian trip to the Orlando Rescue Mission on Thursday, March 23.

“Through clowning you can change the world one person at a time. One of the areas I specialize in is the caring clown, entertaining at nursing homes, adult and children daycares, and hospitals. I also love ministry clowning by sharing a message through a skit or song,” said Louise Carnesale aka LuLu, the 2023 WCA Convention chair.
