It’s hard to believe one year has already flown by. We’re excited to be a great resource for our community – no matter what age or stage in life. I must say, it’s definitely a great time to celebrate all that we’ve been able to accomplish over the past 365 days. Along with the variety of blogs we post every week, we’ve also had the privilege to present financial literacy seminars to many young adults from various schools, conferences and events in our communities.
We have been fortunate enough to bring Money on Trees seminars to different events within our communities this past year, and we look forward to seeing you at more events.
While we celebrate our one year anniversary with Money on Trees, we also mark another significant milestone. FirstOntario Credit Union is celebrating 75 years in our communities. If you’re not familiar with credit unions check out one of our blog posts from this past year on why credit unions feel different. 75 years of financial literacy is something definitely worth celebrating and a milestone to be admired.
It’s amazing how we can look at the past 75 years, and still see ways to improve our financial well-being every single day. For example – November is Financial Literacy Month (FLM) in Canada. It’s an exciting 30 days full of events and activities that help Canadians improve their financial literacy, and for showcasing the many resources available to help people reach their financial goals. The theme of FLM 2014? Strengthening Financial Literacy through collaboration. It underlines the importance of coordinating efforts of organizations that offer programs, resources, information and services to help Canadians understand and manage their personal finances. This is exactly what we’re trying to do with Money on Trees.
We are excited to be entering into year two of Money on Trees. We’re committed to providing you with yet another year of great reads on financial literacy. Year after year, we’re making small steps to empower you and provide you the tools to make informed financial decisions! Thank you for celebrating with us and we congratulate you on your journey as you take the steps to financial fitness!
