AHEM Not-Back-to-School Picnic - Hopkinton

Wednesday, September 9, 2015, 11:00 am – 3:00 pm Come join AHEM for a Not-Back-to-School Picnic! Mix and mingle with other Massachusetts homeschoolers and celebrate the beginning of the fall season in beautiful surroundings. It will be a great opportunity to share wisdom, gather inspiration, and connect with friends old and new.

We will meet at Hopkinton State Park, located at 164 Cedar St., Hopkinton, MA, on the sandy beach on the Hopkinton Reservoir (“Reservoir Beach” on map detail). There is plenty of shade and  a lot of picnic tables. Restrooms are available. Pack a lunch as well as Frisbees, balls, bikes, games, cards, musical instruments – whatever your family needs for a good time at the park and beach.

If you RSVP by Sept. 1, we will have name tags ready for you, as well as an AHEM membership card (limit one per family; you must attend the event on September 9 in order to pick it up). Please email info@ahem.info; include your name and address. You will be added to the Friends of AHEM list. Include kids’ first names in your email if they’d like nametags.
