  • At the Library | September 20, 2017

    Calling all investors: We are excited to be involved in an innovative program to make use of our venue to help educate local investors. An integral part of our mission is to provide vital information to local citizens, and we believe that DASH for the STASH is an excellent means by which to do so. Come to the library, scan four posters and take a one-question quiz about each one on your phone to be entered into a contest to receive a $1,000 contribution to your IRA. This contest runs all through September at the library. Come in at your convenience.
