Kite Fest


September is Recovery Month.   The theme for Recovery Month 2017 is "Join the Voices for Recovery: Strengthen Families and Communities."  

In celebration of Recovery Month and to recognize people in Recovery the Drug Abuse Commission together with the New Era Kite Club of West Virginia is presenting our third annual Kite Fest at Buckeye Woods Park on Saturday September 9th from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.   This is a FREE family friendly event.

New Era Kite Club of West Virginia will decorate the park with Giant Pinwheels and Windsocks.  Kites for sale or bring and fly your own.   Kite Building Workshop (kids can build their own handmade kites for $5.00), Music & Bubble Chasing and Giant Kite Flying.  

Kites are a symbol of freedom and movement from darkness to light which truly symbolizes Recovery. Medina County Share Cluster and student volunteers will provide fun-filled drug prevention activities, face painting and balloon animals.  Ronald McDonald will make a guest appearance.  Medina County Sheriff's Office D.A.R.E. Car and K-9 Unit will share the day with us.
