Bubbles & Skip, Members of the Shrine Clown Unit

This email and picture was sent to us and I thought we should share it with you:

I am seldom seen as Bubbles without SKIP at my right side. We are members of the Shrine Clown Units in Ft. Wayne, IN and Ocala, FL and have appeared at the Shrine Circus in Ft. Wayne and Jacksonville, FL.
SKIP is a Semok figure that I purchased from Alan at the 1983 ConVENTion. I also have his brother Scott, another Alan Semok figure made in 1983. Guess they give meaning to, ” from the same family tree.”
Warmest Regards to all of my Vent brothers and sisters.

Dennis Meeks



Thanks Dennis for sharing and all that you do with the Shrine Circus.

    Hello. My son and I had the pleasure of meeting Bubbles at the Ocala Shrine Rodeo in 2016 and he gave us his card. I have tried contacting him by everything listed on the card but I haven’t had any luck so I’m hoping someone here can help me. My son is desperately wanting him to perform for his birthday. We are in Ocala. If anyone knows how to find Bubbles please please please contact me. We have searched everywhere for him. Thank you sooo much!
