Fall Festival 2017

October 21, 1-4 pm

GH Freeman Park

Please join us for our yearly Fall gathering.  There will be games, caramel apples, and hot cocoa. Each family is asked to bring a festival game (ring toss, toilet paper bowling, pin the tail) with prizes to hand out.  This does not need to be a complicated game.  Prizes can be something as small as a tootsie roll.  Families with a newborn (0-6 months) are excluded from having to provide a game.  There will be a pumpkin carving contest and the V-8 races.  I have a link to a sign up genius below.  If you are planning to come please sign up for one game spot and one food item.  In the event of bad weather the Festival will be moved to the next weekend, October 28th.  Please RSVP as soon as possible.  If you have any question email the board at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Just a reminder, the Back to School dinner and speaker event is this Friday September 15th at 6 p.m. If you have signed up to bring a potato side please bring this with you. I could still use three or four teens to help with childcare. This can be a volunteer activity to count towards community service or we can pay if that is needed. Please contact me by email or text me at 828-778-0517 if you have any questions. Scott Bolin will be coming to speak to us from Christian Home Educators of Kentucky. If you have not RSVP'D you can do this from the calendar link or you can text the number of members attending. Please include ages of children so I know how many we have that made child care. The families will be eating together from 6 to 7:15. Then we will dismiss the children to go play together while we listen to Scott speak. After Scott is finished speaking we will have a question-and-answer time with Scott and a couple other seasoned homeschool moms. This event is open to the homeschool community so if you have friends that are not Barren River homeschool Association members please feel free to invite them.

Committees and/or groups in BRHSA that perform their own fund raising in excess of $250 dollar per year are required to submit a quarterly report to the BRHSA Board that contains:

  • List of current board members
  • Overview of activities for the past quarter
  • Income collected for the previous quarter
  • Expenses paid for the previous quarter

 The summer is flying by and we are preparing for another school year.  Barren  River Homeschool Association loves to offer many events throughout the year for our members.  Below is the list of events we would love to see happen. If you would prayerfully consider heading up or helping out on one of these events in would be a blessing to our group.


If you have any questions about these events please contact Allison Houck at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call/ text 828-778-0517.  The board and those who continually step up to help can not organize all these events alone so if no one steps up to help many of these events will not happen.  Thank you for your consideration.

The Barren River Home School Association exists, first, to honor the Lord Jesus Christ by providing a Biblical atmosphere in which to nurture our children and, second, to serve, support, and connect home schooling families in and around the South Central Kentucky area. We desire to carry out this purpose in, at least, the following ways:
