CAPTION ONLY: SERIOUS CLOWNING

SHARE CAPTION ONLY: SERIOUS CLOWNING

It only makes sense to clown around at Ronald McDonald's House, and that's what several members of two area clown associations - the Hatu Alley in Ogden and Utah Jesters Clown Alley - did Saturday. Enjoying every minute was Ashley Zehrung, 3, who got a hug from "Happy Lil' Darlin' " while Aimee Zehrung, 5, looked on. The reason for the clowns' visit to this home-away-from-home for families of hospitalized children was serious business, though. The two clown groups presented a check for $700 that they'd raised by holding a flea market during National Clown Week, manning a face-painting and balloon-sculpture booth at the Neighbor Fair July 24 and taking up collections among members.
