Our Web Clown Artist!

Right Worshipful Richard W. Burgess, Past Deputy Grand Master of the Grand Lodge of Massachusetts is the Web Clown Artist for the Northeast Clown Institute. Known affectionately as "Salty the Clown," he has been a member of the Aleppo Clowns in Wilmington, MA for 25 years, originally joining in 1981. That year, he assumed responsibility for the Aleppo Shrine Circus and he held the position of Circus Chairman for three years. His artistic flair brought him to the attention of the International Shrine Clowns Association and he became Editor of Clown Alley magazine for three years in the 1990's. Salty's creativity and sense of humor make him perfectly suited as our Web Clown Artist. The Board of Directors hopes you enjoy his artwork as much as we do.
