FPEA Day at the Capitol** will return to Tallahassee on Thursday, January 12, 2012, in partnership with the Home Education Foundation.
You won’t want to miss anything, including meeting for lunch on the 22nd floor of the Florida State Capitol, wonderful speakers and representatives, or the Tallahassee Northside Rotary Club giving away several desktop computers throughout the day. James Baron, husband of FPEA District 5 Director Marlene Baron, will perform soft jazz music during the luncheon — to hear samples, visit www.musicallyoverjoyed.com and click on Musical Appetizers.
For the convenience of those traveling long-distance, the FPEA has secured special rates at two hotels within five miles of the Capitol. When calling the hotels for reservations you MUST mention you are with FPEA to receive the discounted rate.
- Holiday Inn and Suites, 2725 Graves Road ($149/night, full restaurant)
- Comfort Inn and Suites, 2727 Graves Road, ($89/night, breakfast included).
So set the date aside and gather your homeschool friends, and let’s spend the day letting our elected officials know that homeschoolers in Florida stand in one united voice. Hope to see you there!
If you are planning to attend please call or email the FPEA Office at 1-877-ASK-FPEA or firstname.lastname@example.org to let us know how many are in your group so that we can order the correct amount of lunches. We look forward to seeing yeveryone on the 22nd floor at 10 a.m.

**Hold the phone, all you amazing homeschool grammar buffs: we are aware that we are meeting in our state capital, but the main events of the day are taking place on the 22nd floor of the Capitol building, so that is why we call it Day at the Capitol.
