Good afternoon, homeschooling families! I hope your year is off to a smooth start. I am in the process of adding new memberships and updating current ones. Please be patient with me as I am trying to get everything in order. If you registered before or on the night of Kick-off, you have been sent a yahoo request to join CHEAHA chat. Obviously the breakdown in communication lies here…if you haven’t accepted the invitation, you will not be getting this message. So, if you know someone who is new, or if you have been in communication with anyone who has joined but has not begun to receive emails, please let them know that they will have to accept the yahoo invitation in order to activate them in the group and begin to receive emails. Sometimes it will be in their spam folder, so be sure to let them know to check there. They have to physically accept the invitation before they will begin to receive emails. You may want to forward this message to friends who have sent in their membership forms and are waiting.
If you want to be added to the CHEAHA Facebook group, please go to CHEAHA homeschoolers and send a request to join. It is impossible for me to find everyone on Facebook especially new members who I don’t know personally. This group is only for CHEAHA members. I have received numerous requests to join from people who aren’t members. Those have not been accepted. This is where we post information about field trips, where we will be and when. We want this information to remain within our group and not for all of Facebookland to see. There are people who have been referred by members, but unless the person requesting an add is a current CHEAHA member, they will not be added. Thank you for your help with this.
If you are a member from last year and have not renewed, your membership benefits for 2015-2016 will end on August 31. At that time, the CHEAHA chat and Facebook page will be updated to remove all non members. If you don’t want to miss out on all of the great things that CHEAHA has to offer, please get your registration in before then. You can print the form off of the blog or the email that Clark sent and mail it in. If you have a teen attending teen night this Friday, you can hand your form to Dawn Fetner and she will get it to me. Our first skate day is September 2. If you haven’t renewed by then, I will be at skate and you can hand it to me that day, as well, but please remember that this is a CHEAHA event for members so new membership forms and fees must be received by then.
At times, things fall through the cracks, and we are all busy getting our school year started, so I just wanted to send a reminder to get those membership forms in. You definitely don’t want to miss out!
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. I hope you all have a very blessed school year.
