Volunteer to Help at the Convention
Call to Arms
Volunteers are always needed at our Annual Convention. A volunteer receives one audio CD for each session worked. A limited number of volunteers may earn complimentary registration. To volunteer for the Convention, just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Through a special arrangement with the Adventures of Rush Revere Series, copies of the Rush Revere and the First Patriots will be given away to CHEA Convention attendees! Rush and Kathryn Limbaugh wrote the Adventures of Rush Revere Book Series to make learning American history fun. Rush Revere and First Patriots, the second in the series, takes us to the time right before the start of the American Revolution. History teacher Rush Revere and talking horse Liberty take along the time-traveling crew to meet exceptional Americans including Samuel Adams and Patrick Henry. Rush Revere even takes on King George III of Great Britain in London! See the spark that lit the fuse of the American Revolution in Rush Revere and the First Patriots!
