Monson Savings Bank to Conduct Financial-education Event

MONSON — Monson Savings Bank will conduct a financial-education event for veterans, service members, and their families, in collaboration with Monson High School and the Veterans Task Force of the MassSaves Coalition. The event will be held Tuesday, Dec. 9, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Monson High School at 55 Margaret St. in Monson.

There will be workshops on budgeting, setting financial goals, dealing with debt, and repairing credit. Attendees may also speak one-on-one with financial coaches and get help pulling and reviewing credit reports. All of the speakers and coaches are approved by the Department of Defense. There will be a kids’ activities table, supervised by National Honor Society students, so that parents can bring their children and also take full advantage of the program. Refreshments will be served, and the event is free.

“This event is another step in our ongoing efforts to help people throughout our communities become more financially secure,” said Steve Lowell, president of Monson Savings Bank. “It is also another example of why we became a strategic partner with the MassSaves Coalition. Through MassSaves, we are able to bring high-quality, vetted resources to our communities to help people improve their financial knowledge and confidence and to build wealth.”

Questions about the event can be directed to Carolyn Weeks, manager of MSB’s Monson branch, at (413) 9267-1215.
