No topic will be off the table such as investing, how to stretch your paycheck and set aside savings for PCSing, emergencies, or fun things like family vacations, managing credit and debt, year-end tax strategies, and the topics like Thrift Saving Plan, Credit Rating (FICO) and the new military blended retirement system (BRS) and what it means to you and your family. 

    Newport native, Barbara G, is a Certified Financial Planning practitioner has almost 4 decades experience helping families meet their financial goals.  She likes to say, “She not old; she’s seasoned.” You can’t learn less about your money. Come with your questions and be prepared to get answers.

    Join us for a fun holiday crafts session as we fold our own Christmas "Froebel" Paper Origami Stars.

    The stars look beautiful anywhere, but can also be used as gift wrap bows, Christmas tree decorations and just next to your other holiday decor in the house.

    We will learn how to fold the stars and fold the first few ones together followed by everyone sticking around to fold their own stars to take home.

    In Scandinavia and Germany (where these stars are typically folded), they can be done by kids from 5th grade and up, so feel free to bring the little ones along as well.

    We will have light snacks, paper strips and materials ready for you, all you have to do is show up! The event is free for members, but we ask for a $3 fee from non-members. 

    Address of event: Upper Greene Lane Community Center, 1 Gravely Park Drive, Middletown, RI


    We look forward to seeing you!
