Money. While it can’t buy you love, it does keep a roof over your head and food on the table and in today’s demanding world, it can sometimes be difficult to make the money that you do have work for you.

Money. While it can’t buy you love, it does keep a roof over your head and food on the table and in today’s demanding world, it can sometimes be difficult to make the money that you do have work for you.

Selkirk College Continuing Education, in partnership with the Kootenay Boundary Credit Clinic, is offering a free workshop designed to help you figure out how to get the most out of an often-limited resource.

The workshop will take place in Grand Forks on Saturday, May 14 from 1 to 4 p.m. at Selkirk College.

Topics will include banking basics, tracking income and spending, and the ins and outs of credit and debit cards.

The workshop is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Please call the Kootenay Boundary Credit Clinic at 1-877-565-0013 or register online at www.kbcredit.org.

The Kootenay Boundary Credit Clinic is a not-for-profit service.

It is a project of Castlegar and District Community Services Society and is funded by the Law Foundation of BC, Columbia Basin Trust, Kootenay Savings and Nelson and District Credit Union.
