Iowa State University Extension and Outreach is inviting people in and around Lyon, O’Brien, Osceola, [and Sioux – canceled] Counties to take part in a “Financial Winter Cleaning” noon “Lunch and Learn” on January 11th from noon to 1:00 p.m. They’re also offering it online.

According to Jan Monahan, Human Sciences Specialist in Family Finance with ISU Extension and Outreach, the program will offer guidelines and strategies for putting your or your family’s financial paperwork in order.


The noon luncheon will cover multiple topics, according to Monahan.


She says these questions and more will be addressed at the Financial Winter Cleaning luncheons. The program is open to the public, and the registration fee for the program, including a noon meal, is $5. Space is limited, and the lunch and materials need to be prepared, so individuals are asked to pre-register by calling their local extension office. They’ll also be able to tell you where to pre-register for the online course.
