Smart Investing Workshop

Smart Investing Workshop

NeighborWorks and Castleton Downtown will host a free workshop on smart investing as part of their “Forget the Fluff: Finances for Real Life” series.

The workshop will be Thursday, May 14, 2015 from 6-7:30 p.m. at Castleton Downtown in the Opera House on Merchants Row in Rutland.

An expert from Heritage Family Credit Union, Steve Morneau, will discuss smart investing strategies.

The workshop is free, but space is limited.

Email sgilbert@nwwvt.org to save a seat, or call (802) 797-8604.

Morneau’s presentation will help audience members understand the components of a smart retirement plan, including how to choose the right type of IRA. About 70% of working Americans find it hard to save for retirement, according to a 2014 CBS News poll. Come to this workshop and get the tools and strategies to start creating a retirement plan today.

 “Forget the Fluff: Finances for Real Life” is designed to connect recent college grads, aspiring homeowners, young professionals, and entrepreneurs with tools and expertise to invest wisely in their financial futures. Previous sessions provided strategies and advice for achieving homeownership and repaying student loans.

Castleton Downtown’s mission is to support the region’s communities, schools, organizations and business through its Center for Entrepreneurial Programs, Center for Schools, Center for Support and Study of the Community, and Polling Institute. Learn more at www.castleton.edu.

Shiver Me Shamrocks St. Patty’s Fun Run 2015

Join us for the second annual Shiver Me Shamrocks St. Patty’s 5K Fun Run on March 14, 2015 to benefit the Wonderfeet Kids Museum in Rutland, Vermont. You might not get a pot o’ gold, but you might work off a pot belly! COSTUMES ARE ENCOURAGED!

The first 200 runners to sign up get a t-shirt and a winter hat. After the race join your fellow runners and walkers to share in a little St. Patty’s celebration at Hop ‘N Moose for an after party.  Your race entry entitles you to a complimentary draft beer or non-alcoholic beverage of choice.  There will be raffle drawings, music, drink and food specials and lots of fun.  Race prizes will be awarded at the after party.  So plan to stop down and celebrate!

Early sign up is a $25 donation, and runs through February 28. After February 28, the donation is $30.

New to 2015! The FREE Leprechaun Leap Fun Run for kids down Center Street at 1pm! Prizes for best costume!

Race day registration opens at noon at Heritage Family Credit Union’s parking lot on 50 West Street. Cash or check will only be accepted as payment at the day of the race.

We love dogs, and strollers are so helpful, but due to the possibility of weather coated roads, we think they are safer at home. So, please no dogs or strollers on the course.

We encourage runners, joggers, and all forms of walkers to enjoy the day, however race course assistance will end 60 minutes after the start of the race.  Anyone taking longer than 60 minutes to finish, does so at their own risk.
