Greetings New Nobles and Congratulations on becoming a Shriner!!

The Al Koran Klown unit is made up of many individuals who have come together to make a difference in all children’s lives by bringing a “Smile” to their faces and enlighten their “Spirit.”


We participate in Parades and other Community Service Activities:


  • Parades, we currently have 3 Scooters and a Klown Cart that are used in the Parades to draw attention (and save on the feet)
  • Shrine Children’s Parties, Picnics, Xmas Party with Santa, etc.
  • Lodge Functions
  • Shrine & Scottish Rite Family Picnic
  • Carnival/ Circus, a great experience, fun for all
  • Trips to Erie Hospital
  • “Not everyone is expected to participate in all functions”



  • Our meetings are held monthly on the 4th Monday of the month at Al Koran Headquarters in the Klown Room. They start at 7:30pm, Snacks and Refreshments are provided. Dinner prior is optional.
  • Your first meeting we will make you up to see what being a Klown is all about. We have costumes and make-up that you can borrow until you develop your own character.


Sneaker Fund: This is the International Shrine Clown Association’s (ISCA) special program that raises thousands of dollars annually for Burns Research programs for better treatment of Burns Victims. Many techniques developed at the Shriners Hospitals have become primary treatments for burn patients around the world. Please see attached brochure


Football Extravaganza: Is held annually as one of the Klown fundraisers. This is generally held on the away game between the Browns and the Steelers (if possible). Come watch the game at the headquarters and enjoy the “all you can eat” Football Buffet of Hot Dogs, Sloppy Joes and all the goodies.
