Clowning around

PINE PLAINS — Children of all ages had fun at the Pine Plains Lions Club pavilion during a show by Bee Bee the Clown on Wednesday, July 3. Sponsored by the Pine Plains Free Library, Bee Bee had plenty of jokes and magic tricks up her sleeve. After handing each child a long balloon, she engaged them in a game of “Simon Says” to teach them how to make their very own balloon animals. In between the sounds of balloons twisting and popping, Bee Bee lent the children a helping hand as they worked on their projects.
