In partnership with the United Way Women’s Leadership Fund and Literacy Orange, I am very proud to announce a new opportunity for women in our community to become more financially savvy – and save money on their car insurance.
Literacy Orange, who I have worked with for many years to promote women’s financial literacy, offers female residents classes on a variety of important personal finance and business themes, including budgeting, financial planning, insurance, living wills, real estate investments as well as a valuable course on defensive driving.
The upcoming session is now open for 20 applicants. The program will consist of four 3-hour evening sessions and one 6-hour Saturday session. Tuition for the program is provided by a grant from the United Way, however a $30 fee is required for defensive driving materials. Courses will be held at Kelly Williams Realty, 2004 Route 17M in Goshen on the following dates:
- Wednesday, September 19, 6pm-9pm
- Saturday, October 13 Defensive Driving Course, 9am-3pm
- Wednesday, October 17, 6pm-9pm
- Wednesday, November 14, 6pm-9pm
- Wednesday, December 19, 6pm-9pm
Applicants must be at least 18 years of age, have a valid driver license, have a willingness to take action toward financial independence and provide the $30 fee for course materials. Applications are now being accepted and may be obtained at the Literacy Orange Web site or by calling Literacy Orange at (845) 341-5460. The deadline for scholarship application is August 31, 2012.
Understanding your personal finances, preparing yourself for a secure future, and learning how to be safer on the road (and save money on your car insurance) are important goals for any woman – and I strongly encourage anyone interested in contacting Literacy Orange to learn more about this course, or other upcoming programs.
Furthermore, if you are interested in learning more about planning for your future, please visit my official Assembly Website to view an electronic copy of my recent retirement planning mailing. This guide is an important resource to assist the many residents of Orange and Rockland counties who have contacted me about better understanding the many ways that our state government can assist them in preparing for a fiscally-sound and healthy retirement. Please remember: it’s never too early – or too late – to start preparing! If you need further assistance on this, or any other state issue, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call my office at (845) 291-3631 to schedule a meeting.
