KeySpan, ABTS Support Kite Festival


With the help of the wind and the support of KeySpan, Arverne By the Sea and Gateway National Recreation Area, children and adults alike had two fun-filled days at this year’s Kite Festival held at Riis Park. KeySpan was the sponsor of the Children’s Kite Tent where kids got to design, color and then fly their very own creations.  Pictured (l. to r.) are:  Councilman Joe Addabbo; Roger Chewning (Kite Festival Producer) Joanie Omeste and John Lepore (Chamber of Commerce of the Rockaways) Linda Lorenzo, Sara Skalet, Patrick Lorenzo and Laura Sporny (Arverne By The Sea), Renee McClure (KeySpan), Greg Murphy (formerly of the New York Jets and Giants), Dorothy Lewendowski (Parks Queens Borough Commissioner), Shaliza Alli (Chamber of Commerce), Nancy Rivera and Christine Hoepfner (Gateway National Recreation Area).With the help of the wind and the support of KeySpan, Arverne By the Sea and Gateway National Recreation Area, children and adults alike had two fun-filled days at this year’s Kite Festival held at Riis Park.
