The blue sky above Jesse Bethel High School was adorned with colorful balloons and kites Tuesday afternoon, as a group of people remembered the Bethel “family members” who had passed away.
The second Day of Remembrance Kite Festival celebrated the memories of 35 late students and staff members who had passed away since the school opened its doors in 1998.
“This is a time for us to remember those who had been taken from us too soon, but will stay in our heart forever,” Jesse Bethel Principal Linda Kingston said.
Mary Richardson, the mother of Joshua, was one of the parents who organized Tuesday’s event.
