Flying kites to show thanks

IN APPRECIATION–Charlotte Lindsey is pictured flying a kite last Saturday in Prairie du Rocher as a way to show appreciation for essential employees.

Last weekend, the Prairie du Rocher Chamber Tourism Committee was encouraging residents to go fly kites as a way to show their thanks to essential workers.

Organizer Justin Lindsey noted, “We picked kite flying as a way to say thank you to those medical personnel, restaurant owners and employees, grocery store employees, and all of those who are sacrificing their very livelihood in wake of the state and national response.”

The plan was for people to go out at any time on Saturday, while respecting social distancing requirements, and have fun flying their kites.
