COMMUNITY CONVERSATION FOR KIDS APRIL 16 | The Niagara County Historical Society

COMMUNITY CONVERSATION FOR KIDS APRIL 16

COMMUNITY CONVERSATION FOR KIDS – The History Center of Niagara and the New York State Council for the Humanities will present a special Community Conversation for Kids Wed. April 16 from 10 am-noon at the History Center. This free program, geared for young people ages 8-16, will explore the friendship and cooperation that has existed between the United States and Canada for the past 200 years.

The conversation is based upon the book “The Kite That Bridged Two Nations” by Alexis O’Neill. It is the story of Homan Walsh, the young man whose kite crossed the Niagara River to create a line that would be the first link in the building of the first Suspension Bridge across the Niagara gorge in 1847. Audience members will have the opportunity to answer questions about the book and discuss what friendship means to people as well as nations.

Parents, grandparents and other interested adults are welcome to participate in the discussion along with the children. A kite making exercise will take place following the discussion. Each child participant can make and decorate a paper kite to take home and fly at their leisure.

Admission is free but reservations are necessary. Please contact Ann Marie Linnabery at 434-7433 or at history11@verizon.net for reservations and more information. Community Conversations for Kids is sponsored through a grant from the New York Council for the Humanities.
