Sunday, July 23
9:30 -11:00 a.m. Farewell Breakfast
Any child attending the children's activities and entertainment portions of the convention AND IS UNDER THE AGE OF SIX will need to be accompanied by a chaperone. This could be a parent, friend, or relative. If it is necessary for a parent to stay with his or her children during a block of time rather than attending another activity, it will be time well spent. Often, parents will trade off with their spouses to attend a particular adult meeting or workshop if they do not have a helper.
Help us keep a good thing going!
