The American Red Cross has helped aid those in need and raise spirits with its clown troupe in Battle Creek which is the only one the Red Cross has anywhere.

You can look for the best clowns in Battle Creek but these guys don’t show up on the list. One of the Red Cross clowns even posted a thread on Clown Forum (yes, there is such a thing) asking,

 I am currently looking to see if anyone knows of any other ed Cross Clown Troupes around. As far as we know we are the only ones.

We are from Calhoun County, Battle Creek, Michigan. We are the Calhoun County Red Cross Clown Troupe.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you


This was back in 2007. The only answer is YES, they are the only one. Reported in the Battle Creek Shopper,

Battle Creek’s Red Cross Chapter is the only one in the nation to ever maintain a clown troupe which helps the organization raise money at various events and appearances.

The B.C. Chapter has been around for 28 years and is presided over by “Rosebud” the clown.

The B.C. Red Cross even gave Flash Mobs a try.
