Amherst Railway Society - meeting - September, 2015
Date: Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Time: 7:30 pm
Place: Amherst Regional Middle School, Amherst, MA
Like many young people, Nicole Portman came out of high school trying to decide where to go to college. Unlike many young people, Nicole took the road less traveled.
After a rigorous interview and audition process, Nicole was accepted to the prestigious Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Clown College. There she learned the skills that brought the true clown that resided within her to life.
For the last 25 years, Nicole has toured nationally and internationally with Ringling Bros., performed at Disneyland and Disney World, and warmed the hearts of thousands of children and adults at birthdays, picnics, schools, and libraries.
Many of us know Nicole as Maggie the Railroad Clown. Because for years, she has been a star attraction at the Amherst Railway Society’s annual Railroad Hobby Show. And, because she understand railroads.
For three years, Nicole traveled the country aboard the Ringling Bros. circus trains.
On Tuesday, September 15th, Nicole will share her experiences living on a 60 car, mile long train carrying everything from performers, to lions and tigers, to trapeze nets.
The meeting will be held at the Amherst Regional Middle School, Amherst, MA. It will begin at 7:30 pm.
