    Hi Dorrie,

    Great questions. Cost information can be found on their flyer here:

    I’m guessing that you pre-register with Claire. Her phone and email are listed above. I would give that a try.

    The Homeschool Harvest Day at Historic Deerfield sounds great.

    I wanted to pass it on but I noticed the cost wasn’t listed. How much is it?
    Do we preregister with the contact person then pay at the door?

    Thanks, Dorrie
