A homeschool speech and debate club is forming in the Yakima area for this coming school year. Come to an informational meeting to find out more about this exciting activity:
Date: October 3 Thursday
Time: 6:30 pm
Place: Foursquare Church on 40th

I saw and heard these young Christian men and women preparing themselves with the writing, speaking, teamwork, and leadership skills so desperately needed in our world today-they were in many ways demonstrating the best of the homeschool world as I knew it. I was profoundly inspired." Andrew Pudewa (www.excellenceinwriting.com)
