Charlotte Mason Summer BBQ- June 24 at 11 am

From our host, Jordanna McMillian: We are so pleased to invite you to a Charlotte Mason Maryland community Summer BBQ! We’d love to have you and your families join us for an afternoon of fun in the sun, fellowship and eating together. Join us at our small farm in Brookeville, MD on Saturday, June 24 from 11am to celebrate summer and our homeschooling community. Let’s break bread together and share a meal! Bring your own meat + something to share, whether that’s a salad, a side dish, drinks, or dessert. We have a BBQ and will gladly cook your meat (or feel free to cook your own on it). 

There will be food, yard games, and even a slip n slide!

Please contact Jordanna to RSVP and sign up and get more details.
