Too Much on Your Plate?

(Portion Size and Healthier Lifestyle) Admission: FREE

Saturday, Oct 29 

10am – 12noon

Fruits, grains, vegetables and protein -- each food group plays a role in sustaining our health. So what happens if our bodies are deprived of any one of these food groups or overloaded with another one?

What happens when one of the food groups is stewed, fried, or smothered in gravy? Does it make a difference what time of day I eat or how much I eat before bedtime? The answers to these seemingly insignificant questions can make a world of difference for your health.

Strategies to Pay for College

Admission: FREE

Saturday, Oct 29

Graduating from college is one thing, graduating from college with little or no debt is an absolute game-changer. Attend this forum to hear more specific details about "how" to achieve this goal.

Qualifying for a Mortgage or Small Business Loan

Fee: $9.50

Don't be intimidated ... Access to a mortgage loan or business loan is based on three core criteria:
