Colorado: Your Attendance Needed at
the 2010 Homeschool Day at the Capitol!

Dear HSLDA Members and Friends:

Once again, it's that time of year when Christian Home Educators of
Colorado invites all homeschool families to attend the Homeschool Day
at the Capitol. Join Colorado homeschooling families on Friday, April
16, in focusing on this year's theme, "Heritage and Hope - Mining
Nuggets from Colorado's History."

The event offers a variety of programs centered on biblical
foundations for government, the U.S. Constitution, and godly
citizenship. Activities will include morning and afternoon workshops
for all ages, a noon rally on the west steps of the Capitol, tours of
the Capitol building, an art contest, future statesman track for
students, a workshop on how to become a citizen lobbyist and home
education displays in the Capitol rotunda.

By attending this event, you will be showing your support for the
homeschooling freedoms Colorado parents and children have enjoyed for
20 years.

Doors will open at 9 a.m. at the Pillar of Fire Church, located at
1340 Sherman Street in Denver, one block from the state Capitol. The
church is easy to find, with three parking lots nearby.

To register, go online to , or
call CHEC at 1-877-842-2432.

The Home School Legal Defense Association strongly encourages as many
families as possible to attend this event. Not only can you turn the
event into an educational field trip for your children, but you will
be making a positive impact on your legislators by dispelling negative
myths about homeschool families in your face-to-face meetings. To
ensure you meet with your legislators, please plan ahead and make an
appointment with your legislator or send them a note of encouragement
near the day of the event.

-> 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.
