"Let’s Go Fly a Kite" at the 2019 RotaryFest

I certainly hope that by now you have Saturday, June 22, 2019 on your calendar. That is when we will gather at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth, Maine to celebrate District Governor John LoBosco’s terrific year as our fabulous leader. Every Rotary District in the world must have an annual District Conference and DG John has decided to make ours a one-day, family-oriented, free, fun day in the park. There will be some traditional Rotary programing but we want this to be something even non-Rotarians visiting the park might be interested in and by participating come to learn more about who we are and what we do. Potential new members, perhaps?

One of the exciting fun activities for kids, and adults who are young at heart, will be kite-flying and building. Not only will the Nor’easters Kite Club be there to fly kites, but they help us build our own for a great Rotary show in the air. Check it out at noreasterkites.org. We hope to have kites flying for the whole day. I have been assured by the Fort Williams staff that there are no Charlie Brown kite-eating-trees on the property. There are many reasons you should be at RotaryFest, which will run from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Come anytime and bring family, friends, neighbors, or anyone you might meet on the street. It will be a great day.
