The 7th Annual Kites Over Grinnell sponsored by the Grinnell Rotary Club will be Saturday, September 30 from 10 AM - 4 PM at Ahrens Park soccer field and driving range (1510 Penrose Ave). A new sunset night-flying event will take place from 7-9 PM. Professional kite flyers from the America Kitefliers Association (AKA) from Iowa, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, and Pennsylvania, will come to fly their huge, colorful, and professionally-made kites. Kite lovers of all ages are invited to fly their own kites. Every child who attends will receive a ribbon.
This year’s Kites Over Grinnell will honor the memories of two Rotarians who passed away this year - Jack E. Hendrickson, a member from 1992 to 2012 and president in 1990-91; and Jim Onthank, member from 1987 to 2007.
