With tough economic times throughout the country, Assemblywoman Annie Rabbitt (R,I,C- Greenwood Lake) is pleased to announce a personal finance educational opportunity presented by Literacy Orange. Literacy Orange, a local not-for-profit organization, will be hosting classes with professionals who have volunteered their time and expertise on a variety of financial topics. The program is entitled “Financial Literacy.”
“This program will be so beneficial to the women who take advantage of it,” said Assemblywoman Rabbitt. “This is a wonderful opportunity for women of the community to learn about financial sustainability in a tough economic time. It is great to see a fantastic local organization working to better the community through educational resources.”
The Financial Literacy program is a multi-class program consisting of six sessions. The first five sessions will be held from 6:00 p.m. - 9:00 p.m. throughout March and April and are offered for free in partnership with Warwick Savings Foundation on topics ranging from living debt-free, credit, scholarships and financial planning. Additionally, a sixth course on defensive driving, which will be approximately six hours long, will be held on a Saturday (specific date is yet to be announced) and requires a $30 fee for materials.
Classes will be held March 16, March 23, March 30, April 13, and April 20, all from 6:00 p.m.- 9:00 p.m. The defensive driving course date will be announced at a later time. All sessions will be held at Keller Williams Realty, 2004 Route 17M, Goshen, New York.
