(ATLANTIC) Are you financially fit? Take the first step to finding out by attending a lunch and learn on Monday, April 22 at the Cass County Extension Office. This class allows participants to do a quick assessment of their current financial status, and find resources to help them take a more active role in managing their personal finances.
“April 22 marks the beginning of ‘Money Smart Week’ with events all over the nation, so we wanted to do something locally to tie into that and encourage people to start thinking about the small things they can do, or changes they can make to improve their financial management”, said Kate Olson, Cass County Extension Program Coordinator. “We’ll start with a quick financial fitness quiz, so people can find out where they’re at, then we’ll look at some best practices and practical tips to help them get where they want to be.”
The class is designed to be easy for people to attend over their lunch hour. It will start a few minutes after noon, and go for about 45 minutes, to allow attendees plenty of time to get back to work. There is no charge to attend, and people are encouraged to bring a sack lunch if they’d like to eat while participating in the class.
There is no pre-registration required, and anyone who is interested is encouraged to show up on the 22nd to join in! For more information, call the Cass County Extension Office in Atlantic at 712-243-1132 or visit them online at www.extension.iastate.edu/cass.
