When you go to the Saint Patricks Parade this Sunday, DON'T LEAVE TOO SOON!

Why? Because the end of the parade will feature the Scottville Clown Band.

Not Enough? Go to the FREE CONCERT at Historic Masonic Temple after parade!

This band has been delighting audiences since 1903. Each year they give four FREE CONCERTS to raise money for good causes. This year they chose the Historic Masonic Temple in downtown Bay City and will march in the annual St. Pat's Parade.

Not only is the concert free to the audience, it's also put on without cost to the organization the band is honoring. In this case, the Friends Of The Historic Masonic Temple of Bay City will benefit. There will be concessions and drinks sold and all the proceeds will go to the Friend's coffers and put back into the restoration and preservation of the historic temple.


The way it was
The plan is for the band to bring up the end of the parade. When they get to the corner of Center and Madison they'll hook a left and march the half block to the big red Masonic Temple. Everyone who follows them will be treated to the free concert in the great "Blue Room".

For many people, this could be the first opportunity to get inside the historic temple and look around. The building has been lovingly maintained and, although there are certain things that need to be done, the place is a real gem and well worth the visit.

The story of the band is rich in history and goodwill. We'd tell it all here, but we think you should really just go to their website and see what it's all about. Just click on www.scottvilleclownband.com and enjoy the story.

There are also a lot of YouTube videos of the band (including the one below). Just search for Scottville Clown Band.
