Saturday marked an opportunity for Door County residents to get a plethora of free financial advice.
It was the first FISC Financial Wellness Conference in Sturgeon Bay, held at the High School.
Speakers talked about mobile banking fraud, long term care, estate planning, identity theft, building your credit score, stretching your food dollar, and a number of other topics. FISC director Gay Pustaver says it seems like people really enjoyed the information.
In addition to the sessions, there was a panel discussion for teens only about the financial ramifications after high school choices, as well as some teen-only educational activities, and a large group session on establishing good credit.
Senior at Sturgeon Bay High School Michael Wolf found out about the FISC program from his business teacher, and was glad he came.
Pustaver says similar conferences have been held in Fox Cities and Shawano, and she was presently surprised with the turnout of both community members and students here in Sturgeon Bay. She says it is great to make accessible lots of information that most in previous generations just didn't get to receive.
