As part of the program, always paying yourself first was discussed when building your savings program. At the conclusion of the day each participant also received a small savings bank with a $5.00 bill to add to their savings account. “We were thrilled with the discussion about college savings and scholarships” said Judi Desilets,Credit Union ONE Director of Corporate Events.
