Date: Friday, April 19, 2013
On Friday, April 19, 2013, hundreds of Middle Tennessee teens will enjoy a “night in the Orient” as we celebrate the achievements of our graduating seniors at the annual MTHEA Teen Banquet. It will be a spectacular evening filled with food, fun, and festivities!
This semi-formal event will honor our graduating seniors; however, it is also a time for all homeschool high school students (grades 9-12) to fellowship and to celebrate together. The doors will open at 6:00 pm at the Family of God at Woodmont Hills Church (located at 3710 Franklin Road, Nashville). A sumptuous, catered dinner will be followed by a variety of entertainmemt by the students.
Throughout the evening, our seniors will be recognized. Our master of ceremonies will share a brief biography of each senior as he or she comes up to the stage to receive a gift. At the end of the evening we will recognize the graduating class with all of the seniors returning to the stage for a prayer and photo opportunities.
The cost of this elegant evening is $40 per person. This covers the dinner, venue costs, senior gifts,
and decorations. The reservation form in Jonathan’s Arrow or you can print a registration form here.
Tables are arranged for parties of eight. You can request specific seating arrangements for up to eight people per table. Please make sure you include the names and contact information for the people in your group on the reservation form. We will make every effort to accommodate your request.
Families of seniors are always welcome and encouraged to attend! However, since this is a semi-formal event for our high school students, we ask that young children not attend. If you would like to come and see your student’s performance or presentation, we request that you purchase a ticket and attend the banquet.
The deadline for receiving registration forms, payment, and senior information is Monday, March 11. It would be extremely helpful if we receive your information as soon as possible and much before the deadline. It is important that graduating seniors send in their bios and photos promptly by the March 11 deadline.
If you have any questions, please contact Paula King at (615)367-9341 or e-mail at . We look forward to seeing you there!
Interested in performing at the banquet? We are looking for students who are interested in being part of the entertainment for the Teen Banquet. There will be oportunities for students to play during dinner, and time for special selections as part of the after-dinner show. If you play an instrument or sing and would like to participate, but don’t have an accompanist, we can provide one! We are especially interested in ensemble numbers, instrumental or vocal, and will have 2 or 3 rehearsal dates to pull acts together. Bands should plan early to get all member together for the audition.
