    While I can't speak for everyone, I know it's hard for ME to sort through Google listings and visit several websites to find upcoming events in my area. Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a central location where we could post events in Iowa that we know about? I would like to have this thread as our one-stop "event planner" so to speak.

    Won't you please share here, any of the events/conventions/homeschool days at area attractions/etc that you know of that's happening around IA? Feel free to just keep updating this thread as you find things, and I will do the same!

    Thanks so much!!

    To start with, I would like to share a website to visit. I know, I wanted listings posted here, lol, but this is a great website that I had not heard about before one of the wonderful moms here posted about it! It's called Macaroni Kid, and it's a local event listing. Library days, park days, free contests and more; it's a neat little site that is pretty specific to an area. Just put in your state and then your city and you find out about things right in your little neck of the woods.

    The IC Secular Homeschool Group's October Potluck is tomorrow October, 24, 2010 at the Solon Public Library. This is a costume party and it is a potluck so bring a dish to share and table service.

    Directions to the Solon Public Library:

    From Iowa City head North on Hwy 1 (Dodge Street turns into Hwy 1), you will go across I-80 overpass.

    Drive North for 8 miles, go through most of the town, won't take long , then turn Left onto Main St. (BP gas station on the corner, and blinking traffic light)

    Keep going forward at the 4 way stop sign, just down the hill and on the right side of the road will be the Solon Public Library.

    The meeting room is on the right in the hallway.
