Ladies’ Luncheons & Men’s Tool Time
Saturday, March 14th

The Ladies’ Luncheon is a wonderful event where the Moms can sit and have lunch with other Moms.  Jeni Chase will be speaking to the ladies at this time with an encouraging and uplifting message.  This is not to be missed! 

The Men’s Tool Time will feature a “round-table” discussion with homeschool Dads.  Each Dad has a different experience in their homeschooling journey.  They will be sharing relevant topics that are sure to be a blessing to all.

A full lunch is served at both events.

** PLEASE NOTE:  There is NO seating for children at either the Moms or Dads luncheons.  The only exception is for nursing babies.  **

As a convenience to registered attendees, who will not be attending the Luncheons, you can choose to purchase a bag lunch (turkey sandwich, bottle of water, and chips).   This option is for Saturday ONLY and must be pre-ordered with on-line registration. (If you are attending the Luncheons, you may not purchase bag lunches for children and leave them unattended.  All children must remain under parental supervision at all times.)
