Reality Check Financial Education Experience 2017

 “In 2017,  University of Wisconsin – Extension’s Reality Check Financial Education Experience welcomed Independence School District along with Alma, Cochrane-Fountain City, Mondovi, Durand, Pepin, Elmwood, Plum City and River Valley. The learning event included nearly 350 students and over 120 adult volunteers from local communities. Students develop an appreciation for what their parents do to provide for them each month as they are expected to pay bills and see if they can maintain their budget as if they are a mid-20 year old with a career. New to this year’s Reality Check was the Library station featuring Alma Public Librarian Rita Magno and Mondovi Public Librarian Arin Wilken. The Library provided an opportunity for students to learn about the free resources available to them in the community and ways to save dollars each month by utilizing the Library.”

Mary Johnson shared historic methods for preserving food with children in the C-FC 4H program recently. Children tasted mincemeat, and learned that foods such as pemmican were essential for survival before the age of the Frigidaire.
