symbols

A kite flies wild and free, but is also grounded and connected to its guide. If it crashes, someone helps it up, and gets it on its way again. We all smile when we see a kite, remembering the exhilaration of being one with the wind.  Kites have always been a Hallmark symbol, reminding us to help seniors choose and find freedom.

You will see our kites "flying" throughout our communities, and also throughout other communities we have touched.  We see it as leaving our mark on places where we have encouraged friends to choose freedom.  You can too!

  Kites hang in our Hallmark town square.
