Homemakers receive financial lesson ideas



Extension homemakers received information about potential lessons focused on financial issues during the Madison District Spring Lesson Bazaar on May 14 at Jennings County Public Library in North Vernon.

Jackson County homemakers attending were Aryss Beebe, Helen Lutes, Martha McIntire, Glenda Neawedde, Ruby Nicum, Norma Pollert, Debbie Schubert, Shirley Sears, Carol Wait, Carol White and Adrene Wunder. Abby Feehan, a Ball State dietetic intern working at the Jackson County Extension Office this summer, and Lauren Neuenschwander, Jackson County Extension educator, also attended.

Area extension educators presented sections from two different financial programs: “Who Gets Grandma’s Yellow Pie Plate,” a series of lessons about passing on personal possessions that have sentimental, emotional or financial value, and “Small Steps to Health and Wealth,” a series of lessons designed to motivate consumers to implement behavior changes that simultaneously improve their health and personal finances.
