Karen Poff, Northern Shenandoah Valley Financial Education Program
19 January 2018
We were in the studio talking money today with Karen Poff, Senior Extension Agent With Virginia Cooperative Extension’s Northern Shenandoah Valley Financial Education Program.
We talked about their Diabetes Prevention Program that starts on January 25 at the Warren County Government Center. The deadline to register is today, January 16, 2018 and registration is required. You can download the flyer here: 2018 DPP flyer_WC_Final.docx Please contact Rebecca Davis via phone: 540-665-5699 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
We also talked about their “Reality Store” event happening on Tuesday, January 23, 2018 at James Wood High School. You can help give students a firsthand look at the cost of daily life! During “Reality Store” students visit stations representing typical spending categories such as housing, transportation, child care, and food, making budget decisions based on their scenario. They need lots of adult volunteers to staff the booths and make this program a success! Sign up to help at: https://tinyurl.com/RealityStoreVol1-23-18
Karen also filled us in on their upcoming Money Management Series that starts in mid-February. You can download that flyer here: Managing Your Money Flyer, All Counties, Winter 2018 with the dates, times & locations. We’ll be doing a special podcast in the next few weeks to talk more in-depth about the different segments of the series, what you can learn and why it’s important. Stay tuned to our Facebook page for those details.
