This year it will be held on June 6 – 8. On Saturday, June 7, Oak Meadow participants will join in the Strolling of the Heifers parade. If you live in or near Brattleboro, or if you will be visiting the area, it is an eventful activity that all Oak Meadow families, friends, and supporters are welcome to attend and march along with the Oak Meadow staff, teachers and other home schooled families.
