There are no fees to the fair and the entire community is invited.

Presenters will be Kerry Temple, branch president of First Security Bank in Robinsonville; Will Fleming on credit counseling; Thad Campbell – North Mississippi Legal Services on wills/estate planning; Amy Smith for investment/savings; Susan Neal, checking accounts/loans; and Barbara Bonnell, home loans.

The lessons are:

1) Don’t wait for economic change, create it;

2) Financial freedom is worth fighting for;

3) Sometimes you need to step out on faith and take a risk;

4) Your education, job or career status doesn’t define you; and

5) Take your work seriously.

Belinda Morris is the organizer through the community development program at First Security Bank.
