South Bend TV Station Airs Live Preview of Shipshewana Kite Festival

In anticipation of this Saturday's Kite Komotion event in Shipshewana, WNDU Channel 16 of South Bend did an early morning interview with our club vice president, Lynn Warner. You can view recordings of both segments below.

Kudos to Lynn for getting up at "oh-dark-thirty" to talk with the reporter and, most important, for a job well done!

Please be patient. The videos might require some time to load. Alternatively, view them on the TV station's website.
