Financial First Aid

Budgeting and financial self reliance can be difficult during a time of economic strain but it can be done, especially with the help of a free financial first aid class being taught in Vernal and Roosevelt. The one time class offers tips and tricks to saving, budgeting and credit reports and only one chance to attend remains in each County this fall. “This class can really help anyone,” shares VITA Regional Coordinator Lauren Schwanz. “I only have two [classes] left and I would really like to see a bigger turnout at both.” Tonight is the final Financial First Aid class in Duchesne County. It is being held at the UBAOG office on 330 East 100 South in Roosevelt from 6:00 to 8:30pm. The final course being offered in Uintah County will be held next Tuesday, September 27, from 6:00 to 8:30pm at the Uintah County Library. For more information, call 722-4518.
