Kader Klowns By Noble “Freddieee” Wendt
When you run out of gas what is a Cyclown to do? You put your hands up and say, ‘What’s UP?” You guys meet us at Burns and we will fill your
anks (The Kader Klowns will pay for it!) As an additional bonus we will show you how to turn the tank valve on then start your tri-cycle... Maybe even
throw in a red nose instead of a red baseball cap. Oh to be “Great Again.” The rest of the story will come at a later date. Hint: Might have something
to do with your training wheels.
The Gleneden Community Club sponsored their 20th, 4th of July breakfast and parade at Gleneden Beach. Always a favorite activity for many residents
from Lincoln City and nearby communities, the parade is a summer highlight. The Shriner’s Kader Klowns having participated for several years and
add entertainment at the breakfast with groans and moans along with an occasional balloon if there is time between the groans. The Kader Klowns
are an appreciated showcase for the Shrine. The post office collect
coins in a contribution jar starting in January in the post office. The poster master has the locals empty their pockets and purses of all change
and put in the jar for the Shrine before their mail is given to them. Hee Hee. A wonderful relationship has grown over the years with this
community. This is always a special parade for us with this being the first time kids coming out of the crowd giving us money for the Shrine.
One of our clowns could not make it (Ronnee) so he sent an ambassador, his Daughter whom treats like kings with hugs and accolades. She has
been known to throw one heck of a BBQ for us too. \
Look for us as we will look for you, around our nose of course. A clown’s nose gets in the way.
If you want to clown around with us give me a shout, even when you run out of gas, or take the training wheels off too soon!

Goading a Clown Nose Off?
The first article we let it slide, but upon further
discussion with fellow Nobles while helping
build the haunted house I was assured, "No Freddieee you were
being alerted the Kader Klowns are in the Cy-Clowns sights." I
said "Really". My thoughts they confused us with another group,
as they ride in circles anyway. The November issue reassured
What does Shirley Temples, lip stick, Shriner shiner, orange
pants/hats and mascara have in common? The Cy-Clowns of
course! The last two issues in the Oasis, the Kader Klowns were
mentioned in their articles. Check um out! The Kader Klowns will
enjoy a good Nose Off with them yet to be discussed.... at a later,
mutually accepted challenge to be determined. The challenge
may be but not limited to which unit attends the most parades with
the loser riding a goat (For Goading) the last parade of the year
and a donation to the Hospital/transportation fund. What do you
think? Are you up to a challenge ? Of course next year's unit head
leader would be the referee. I am sure you will see further
dialogue between the groups in the Oasis issues to come. HEE
The year is not over yet, we have a birthday party to perform for a
Past Potentate's mother, children's Christmas party, and the
Abate Toy run at the hospital to round out the year. During the
spring of 2015 we will perform at a special function for a Masonic
Lodge in recognition of their widows, orphans and Ladies annual
dinner . Which I am told it's a seven course meal with servers
being in Tux. This will be a fun event along with fellowship
continuing next year.
Look for us as we will look for you, around our nose of course. A
clown’s nose gets in the way.
If you want to clown around with us give me a shout. Our
meetings are at the Shrine Hospital 2nd floor starting at 6:30 in
the cafeteria the second Tuesday of each month. We clown for an
hour or so before each meeting on the third floor.
See you over the nose
