Dear Homeschool Exhibitor,

We had a wonderful time working with different ones of you over the past year for the different events that we had. We are seeing new doors opening for us this year. For those that are new, please let me introduce myself and our organization. My husband & I are the directors of the Missouri Association of Teaching Christian Homes, Inc. (MATCH). This is the only state wide Christian organization in Missouri. We have three children a son 29, daughter 18 and our youngest 14.

We would love to work with your group in whatever way possible. We would love to work with your group in whatever way possible. Here are a few suggestions:

Our 3rd annual Homeschool Day at Shepherd of the Hills in Branson, MO will be held October 4th. We are looking forward to a BIG event. What we are looking for is coupons/gift cards that can be used as door prizes for those attending. Last year we had some great restaurants that gave coupons for door prizes. We would like to include some from you, too. October 5th we will be going to the Branson Veterans memorial Museum, Ripley's Believe It or Not, Dolly Parton's Stampede and Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai. Each place is doing something educational for our group.

October 6-7 is our biggest days of the year at the Silver Dollar City Homeschool Day. This is our 20th annual Homeschool Weekend. Each year we increase with the numbers that attend. This event is NOT open to vendors to attend. We like to hand out little things to the children as they come in for the big day. You may choose whatever type of item for us to put in their bags and have your name on it. The kids love to have pencils, pens, little notepads, wrist bands, etc. We also need to have lanyards for name tags that can be used to make our homeschool families to stand out. We want this to not only be something for the kids but a way for you to be able to advertise, too. The bags are handed out as they come into the city with their packets for the day and many don't want to carry a really heavy bag around all day. We want to get the magazines into their hands, so please send us a card for them to send to you for a free sample of the magazine. We will be putting together 300 bags. We need all the items to be in by September 7, 2018. Putting them in the bags is done for FREE. The last several years we have done door prizes and people love this! So if you would like to do door prizes, we would love it.

We are currently just about ready to roll out our information on the Online Convention. We are really excited about it and hope to announce it in the next couple of days.

We look forward to working with you. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us at 417-255-1103 or by email.

God bless you,
