Veteran homeschooler?  New homeschooler?  Just thinking about homeschooling?  You are all invited to this statewide gathering.  Please join us for a relaxed get-together in a safe, beautiful setting.  Bring your friends; meet new friends.  New folks:  come to meet other families!  Veterans:  come to encourage those just starting.  Everyone:  have a lot of rain-or-shine fun.  Last year's event featured picture-perfect weather for the seventy folks who showed up.  We can't promise that again, but between the large pavilion and a medium-sized recreation building we'll be set for a good time even if it pours.

BONUS!  Every family will be automatically entered in a drawing for a valuable prize.
