The 12th Annual Homeschoolers NOT-Going-Back-to-School Celebration at Short Sands Beach in York, Maine will be held Thu, Sept. 6th (raindate Fri, Sept. 7th).
Any and all homeschoolers and their families are welcome! Kids of ALL ages will be there. There is plenty of parking (meters - bring your quarters), a great playground, and The Goldenrod, a salt water taffy shop where you can see the antique taffy machines at work:o). Take-out-food in the immediate area is limited, so packing a lunch is advisable. Arrive when you feel like it and stay as long as you like. We usually try to gather somewhat in a group, but tend to get a little spread out.
