Cullman’s Rotary Club will host a ‘Stop Polio Now!’ free kite flying contest on Saturday, March 30, from 12:30-2p.m. at Heritage Park’s soccer fields.
The awareness event is open to all ages. Community Service Chairman of the Cullman Rotary Club Mike Krassick said this event is a great way to get people outside and have fun with their kids and grandkids.
“We want to give back to the community by doing this,” Krassick said. “We also want to thank them for the support of our fundraiser that we had in early March with our auction and get the word out to help stop Polio.”
Krassick said they do want to give back to the community but at the same time their goal is to stop Polio now.
“There are two countries in South America that still have reported cases of Polio,” Krassick said. “That’s still our main theme to stop Polio and contribute funding to that, not just locally but nationally.”
Krassick said that they will be giving away ‘Stop Polio Now!’ stickers to the first 1,000 people and free kites to the first 130 flyers. St. Bernard students will also be helping build the kites that will be given away.
The Cullman Rotary Club has 60 members and meets every Thursday.
“We’re hoping for a great day,” Krassick said.
