Michigan: Your Attendance Needed for
Home School Family Day at the Capitol!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

We need your attendance at Home School Family Day at the Capitol in

This year, it is more important than ever to have a large crowd there
to lobby against the recently introduced H.B. 5912, the bill which
would require homeschoolers to register with the state. The freedom
you currently have to homeschool in Michigan is worth fighting to

This important event will be held April 9, 2008 from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
in Lansing, Michigan in and around the Capitol Building. Home School
Legal Defense Association Chairman and Founder Michael Farris will be
there to speak on the need for a Parental Rights amendment to the
United States Constitution.

We encourage you to attend and take advantage of this special program.
Your homeschool family will have a unique opportunity to observe the
legislative process and spend time with elected officials at the State
Capitol. You will learn firsthand how laws are made, attend a
committee meeting, visit your representative and senator, and observe
a legislative session in progress. Choose from a variety of workshops
and attend a legislative luncheon with state legislators and leaders.

This event is sponsored by the Home Education League of Michigan along
with legislative co-sponsors (all homeschool dads) Representative Jack
Hoogendyk (61st District), Representative Bill Huizenga (90th
District) and Senator Alan Cropsey (33rd District).

During the visit with your representative and senator, you will also
have the opportunity to express opposition to H.B. 5912 on a personal
level. In order to further express your opposition to H.B. 5912, there
will be rally at the Capitol steps from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Even if you cannot register to attend the day's event, please consider
attending this free rally and bringing another family with you!

For more information, see or contact Paulette Brack
at (269) 353-9515. In order to plan for the size of the crowd, please
send an email to if you are planning to attend
the rally.

Our parental and homeschool freedoms are best preserved when we all
stand together to defend them. We look forward to seeing you at the
Rally and Home School Family Day at the Capitol!

-> How many acorns can a chipmunk hold in its cheeks?

We don't know! But we do know that gathering little by little
enables ordinary folks to prepare for hard times. That principle
is behind HSLDA's payment plan: by paying a month at a time,
families can receive an annual HSLDA membership. Meanwhile, they
can feel secure as they homeschool and focus on other priorities
-- their children. Don't go nuts trying to pay for membership all
once. Choose one of our convenient payment plans.
