Extension will provide financial course for women

“Money Talk: A Financial Course for Women,” will be offered in Fort Dodge beginning Feb. 18, sponsored by Iowa State University Extension and Outreach. The series will continue weekly from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays through March 25.

Topics will include Reaching Financial Goals, Financial Security, both short-term and long-term, Insurance Essentials, Creditworthiness, Investment Fundamentals, and Estate Planning and Legal Issues. Sessions will be non-commercial, conducted by Barb Wollan, Extension family finance specialist and by local professionals, using materials developed by Extension specialists at the state and national level.

The registration fee (normally $75) has been reduced to $40, thanks to support from the Second District Chapter of Credit Unions.

Each participant will receive a 192-page informational workbook. The workshops will be held at the Webster County Extension office, at the Crossroads Mall.

Participants should register by Feb. 13 by calling Webster County Extension, 576-2119.
