Community Learning Centers host finance night
Do you need help with savings? Want to learn how to handle your finances better?
The Community Learning Center invites the public to come out to the Wood County Educational Service Center on Wednesday at 5:30 pm to hear guest speaker Chad Plontz.
Plontz is a financial adviser who will be sharing tips and tricks for CLC families spending and saving strategies.
Parent take-home bags will include a budgeting book and helpful financial tools. Children’s bags will include a piggy bank and a financial book to encourage saving. In addition to dinner and take-home bags, there will also be multiple raffle prizes for families, including a chance to win local business gift cards and additional budgeting materials!
The Community Learning Centers Finance Night will have a heavy focus on helping families simplify their spending and savings strategies. Participants will learn about setting personal financial goals, balancing savings, spending, and borrowing to achieve goals. Further, Plontz will touch on strategies for controlling debt, improving credit scores, and practical savings options for now through years of retirement.
While the parents are with Plontz, the CLC staff will be leading students through a fun hands-on experience to create their own lemonade stand, run a pizza store, and learn about supply and demand.
The educational service center is located at 1867 Research Drive.
