* Directions: Queen's park is located near the Arenex Complex in New West and is easy to find from Vancouver, Surrey/Langley and most
places in the Lower Mainland. If coming from Surrey, take the Patullo Bridge and just go straight (McBride). You will see the park on your
left. From Vancouver, take Canada Way to 10th Avenue in New West, turn left at the highschool and follow 10th around to McBride. The park will be on
your right.

This is a very casual event. People start gathering around 11 and stay until they feel like going home. It can be very reassuring, especially for first-time homelearners, to have something special to do when all the neighbourhood kids troop back to school. If you are a new home learning family, come out and meet some experienced folks. If you have been at this for awhile, come and share your experience with a newbie. Last year we made masking tape name tags and indicated a new home learner with a colour-coded N so that the rest of us would make a point of welcoming the new folks.

PLEASE PASS THIS INFO ON TO YOUR LOCAL SUPPORT GROUPS.
Part of the fun is meeting people from other areas.
See you at the Picnic!
