NATIONAL KITE MONTH
There have been many Kite Festivals around the world that have been cancelled or post poned due to the Covid-19 virus pandemic. As you shelter in place and are staying inside, finish up a kite or maybe start a new kite. That way when we are on a field together, in the future, we will have more kites to show and share. Please be safe when you can go out and fly kites.
Founded in 1964 by the late Robert M. Ingraham of New Mexico, the American Kitefliers Association (AKA) has thousands of members in 25 countries, making it the largest association of kite fliers and kite clubs in the world. Our purpose is to educate the public in the art, history, technology, and practice of building and flying kites – to advance joys and values of kiting in all nations. We strive to promote public awareness of the pleasures and educational opportunities that kites provide. They can remind us about how we interact with our environment and each other. Kites can be a source of community building, breaking down barriers that typically prevent us from interacting. No words are needed to fly a kite!
