On November 12 the Rotary Club of Hamilton AM unveiled their first group of Clowns for Kids for the Hamilton Santa Claus Parade.  Four adults (Henry Mizzi, Tony Wellenreiter, Melissa Heffernan and Mark Stewart raised/donated money for the honour and privilege of being Clowns in the Santa Claus Parade.  As well, each clown was able to bring children who got to be clowns as well.  Henry brought his niece, Tony brought his grandchildren and Mark brought two students from Hess Street School.  The idea for this project came from the Rotary Club of Brantford who generously shared their materials and logos for the initiatives.  A big thank you also goes out to the Rotary Club of Hamilton who allowed us to tag along with their fire truck so that we had a Rotary identity.  Over $4,000 was raised to support our international rotary project.
