|A New Club – As early as 2004 Lehigh Valley Kite Society had started to decline in membership and interest. They had lost their “permanent” clubhouse which was in the Burlesque Repair Shop owned by Andy Gelinas. He had closed his shop in South Bethlehem, PA and moved about an hour north to East Stroudsburg. Seeing what was happening to LVKS, he made an offer to start a new kite club to the north and allow LVKS to merge into it. In late 2007, LVKS accepted this proposal and merged with the newly formed “Pocono Kite Symphony”. Andy and a couple of “loyal” LVKS members were intent to keep the LVKS name viable through mixed ground displays (both PKS and LVKS), keep up the tradition of Kids Kitebuilding that LVKS was so adept at, and an attempt to keep kiting alive in Eastern Pennsylvania. To see where we have been since 1991 thru 2007 hit the LVKS logo at the top.

Thank you to everyone that came out to
THE 25TH ANNUAL KITE DAY IN THE PARK!
at Louise Moore Park in Easton, PA.
Even though Mother Nature didn’t bring us any wind,
we still had a great day!
IT’S FINALLY OUR FAVORITE TIME OF YEAR!!
Time for some fresh air, sunshine and lots of flying fun!
if you are looking for an interactive activity for your school “Field Day”,
church or community youth organization we would love to talk to you
about our Kids Kitebuilding programs! Our programs are a great way to
introduce kids to the fun of kiting, where they get to decorate and
build their own kite that doesn’t even need wind to fly!
