Andona Society seeks to boost its rolls

(Continued)

Clown Town has already been forced to cut back due to Andona’s shrinking membership numbers.

“We are unable to provide all of the experiences at Clown Town that people have come to love, including the dunk tank, balloons and photos,” she said. “We attempt to offset these losses by inviting businesses to sponsor the event and promote their services. Additionally, we hosted a Spring Fling for middle school students, which we no longer have enough members to do.”
