IF YOU CAN’T JOIN US ON APRIL 7TH, Go fly a kite anyway. Every year in April kite enthusiasts across North America celebrate the history and the future of the world’s favorite pastime by letting their kites fly. It is a month to celebrate the joy and happiness that comes from letting out the line, letting your kite catch the wind, and letting that kite soar high into the sky.And, if you like, take a photo of your child with their kite an send it to firstname.lastname@example.org for posting on the Healthy Lombard Selfie Page (www.facebook.com/healthylombardselfies) AND on the Kiwanis Club of Lombard website (www.kiwaniscluboflombard.org).
All entries will be entered into a drawing at the end of April. Two winners will be selected at random. The winners will each receive a $25 gift card to Yorktown Mall.
April was chosen as National Kite Month because it was the month that perfectly symbolized hope, potential, and joy. As the first month in spring, April is the month when we see the last of the snow giving way to green lawns, a month that we are eager to get outside and be active. April is when most kite fliers start to bring their kites out of the closet and prepare for a summer in the park or on the beach. So why not join in this year?e Kiwanis Club of Lombard website (www.kiwaniscluboflombard.org).
