During the month of May, we invite you to make a kite! Be creative, make it colorful, add fun designs, let your imagination fly. Bring your kite to display at the Red Kite Candy shop in Hanover, and receive a small bag of yummy Red Kite candy. At month’s end, 5 grand prize winners will be chosen- the come pick up your kite and fly it at Balch Hill when you wish. Please put name, age and contact info on your kite!
Earth Day reminds us to be grateful for Susan Harper, a dedicated volunteer and Secretary of our Board of Directors from 2003-2008, who recently passed away. She really made things happen in Hanover, especially at the Balch Hill Natural Area, where she started the wonderful tradition of Kite Day, when families enjoy the views and spring breezes on the open summit. Susan’s family has asked that gifts in her memory be made to the Conservancy; we are dedicating them to the Balch Hill Stewardship Fund in her name.
