What Klowns thought up these trivia questions?

April 28, 2013 

The Ainad Shriners Krazy Klowns had fun April 20 with their second trivia contest.

Money raised helps the Ainad Krazy Klowns purchase balloons and candy for children along parade routes.

"Most importantly," said Don Spradling, "it helps us provide small gifts and parties when visiting children at the St. Louis Shriners Hospital, along with our annual donation directly to the hospital."

The trivia emcee was Don Spradling Jr.

Donations can be mailed to Donald Spradling Sr. (checks payable to Krazy Klowns), 1905 Bowler Road, O'Fallon IL 62269.
