Barry Goodman, Michigan personal injury Attorney and Distinguished Clown Corps member celebrates Parade FoundationPartner and Attorney of the Southfield, Michigan personal injury law firm of Goodman Acker P.C., Barry Goodman, was a part of the Distinguished Clown Corps this past Thanksgiving at America's Thanksgiving Day Parade held in downtown Detroit.

The Distinguished Clown Corps is a by invitation-only privilege that carries a required $1,000.00 donation to support the Michigan Thanksgiving Parade Foundation (The Parade Company). With the acceptance of being a part of the Corps, volunteers walk in the parade wearing full costume, passing out beads and greeting everyone.

For more than two decades, the Distinguished Clown Corps has been a part of America's Thanksgiving Day Parade with over 2,000 volunteers. For Barry Goodman, this was his first year participating as a clown in the Distinguished Clown Corps.

"I knew of men previously that gave their time over the years and thought it was my time to give back to the city during its new Renaissance," says Goodman of why he decided to accept the nomination to the Distinguished Clown Corps and get involved this year.

"The faces of the children, from infants to toddlers, to young boys and girls, of when they saw the wild and crazy Clown Corps were priceless, and the visions of their smiles still dance in my head. Not to mention the excitement of the crowd as we walked down the street passing out the several strands of beads that we were draped with. There are many ways to give back to the City. This was clearly one of the most memorable and enjoyable ones to do," says Goodman.

The Michigan Thanksgiving Parade Foundation is an independent, not-for-profit organization. The purpose of the organization is to stage and perpetuate America's Thanksgiving Parade ensuring that the parade remains a vital part of metropolitan Detroit's cultural community.
