    Why did a copy-writer think this was necessary?

    Mr. Bunny and Friends

    10 a.m.-12:30 p.m. today, Central City Park. There will be games and prizes followed by an egg hunt. Home-school children are welcome. Please call to register your school or group, ask for Sandra at 751-9288.

    It’s better than being excluded, but still…

    “Homeschool children are welcome, and we hope that they are not offended by Mr. Bunny, who has become famous as a fertility symbol in the Western tradition.”

    Maybe it’s usually a school field trip thing and homeschoolers weren’t allowed before?

    Maybe they thought “please register your school or group” sounded unwelcoming to homeschoolers. I think it’s nice that they wanted to be inclusive.

    The announcement was likely submitted that way by the organizers. I see it as one of the many child-related businesses that are realizing a still somewhat untapped market.

    My kids go to swimming and gymnastics occasionally at organized businesses that arrange “special” daytime classes for homeschool groups/kids. It’s also usually cheaper :o) These buildings/businesses would otherwise be dormant – waiting for the weekend or afternoons for the g-school kids to be available.
