Bob Gretton says,

We will have a guest lecturer at the Nov meeting. Mr. Keith Karas will be presenting ” Jazzing up your Puppet” 7:30pm at Riderwood village. You don’t want to miss this wonderful lecture from a Award Winning Clown.

FYI, the November meeting is on Monday, November 24th, 2014.

Kapitol Klown Meetings

The change in meeting dates had been miscommunicated. The new date of the Kapitol Klowns meetings is the 4th Monday of each month. The location of the meetings is the Craft Room in the Town Center building, which is the large building at the bottom of the hill when you come onto the Riderwood property.

August 2014 Meeting Cancelled

AUGUST MEETING IS CANCELLED. Many of the members will be away on vacation.

We had hoped for more people to attend the Monday July’s meeting held at Town Center – it was disappointing. Without your support, how can the club go forward successfully with the upcoming October Workshop. Not fair for Bob who has spent countless hours contacting all the vendors. Couple of months ago, there were “hands” who voted in favor of the workshop … the club needs your support and commitment now!

Labor Day Parade

The club has another opportunity to participate, and get paid, for the Gaithersburg Labor Day Parade. Will you be available? See info:

Hi Maureen,

I would love to have the Kapitol Klowns return this year. I would like for the Klowns to entertain on Russell Ave about 12:30 before the parade and when there are big gaps.

I would like maybe one or two klowns whichever you think will work to entertain the crowd for each designated area – between Walker Ave and Maryland Ave; between Maryland Ave and Montgomery Ave (entrance to the right of Asbury Village) and between the Asbury Village entrance to the end of parade where the public is located
