2011 Home School Day at Frontier Culture Museum ... photos

Home Educators Association of Virginia (HEAV) sponsored Home School Day at Staunton's Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia on September 30, 2011. Yvonne Bunn, director of homeschool support and director of government affairs, greeted home school families from throughout the Commonwealth along with her husband, George (not pictured). More than 1,500 participants took part in the special activities of the day.

Smoke from the English farm could be seen rising above the trees as students helped the interpreters in the kitchen.

Overflow parking was a testament to the popularity of the event.

A group of Grace Christian School students also enjoyed the day with hands-on activities.

Volunteers are the heart of any organization, and the Frontier Culture Museum is no different. Many thanks to all those who give their time and money to help this crown jewel of the Shenandoah Valley.
