Message from the Board
Ahhh, summertime. Maybe the past year has made us appreciate the sunshine, backyard barbecues, and flip flop weather a little more. While schools are on hiatus, it’s a great time to have money conversations with kids. This month we’re talking about credit cards. It’s important that kids learn how to handle credit responsibly before they start using it, since unwitting credit mistakes can quickly become a burden. Be sure to read this month’s highlighted articles for all the tips.
