keeps things fun too!"

Indiana Home Educators' Network and IndianaHomeschoolers doesn't
hold giveaways on a regular basis, but according to Mr. Bennett,
"We're in the process of arranging for some really nice prizes
to give away this year. As businesses and vendors begin to realize
that IHEN and our statewide discussion list are reaching homeschoolers
throughout the entire state, they'll want us to help them reach
those parents with their message."
