It was a great night of fun and fellowship for the clown unit at the February Valentines Dinner and Dance. A packed house of about 125 attendees were on hand. Upon entry to the evening, all ladies received a Red Rose by Joan Swauger and guests had assigned seating. We also had a table with information about how to become a Shriner. A mini silent auction was held regarding signed sporting memorabilia. Ill. Sir John Swauger, P.P. served as MC for the evening. Fellow clown unit member Joseph “Bones” Salamone ran the kitchen and organized volunteers! Lady Joan Swauger played a key role in the events leading up to the evening’s activity and during the evening as well! A mixture of youth musicians playing various instruments and orchestral tunes were present including a high school Pianist from Paramus Catholic.
The Kitchen team on this special evening prepares a chef’s level meal! Eggplant, Salmon, and Filet Mignon just to name a few! Each table had a Shrine Representative to help answer questions and explain what Shriners do! A special thanks to the boys of Clifton Order of DeMolay who helped with waitering! These guys are pros!! Great job guys! The majority of the crowd were Non-Masons that had a chance to see what we are all about!
