The 2009 Money Smart Week (MSW) will be April 18-25. MSW is a series of free classes and activities designed to help consumers better manage their personal finances. You can learn everything from teaching your children how to save to preparing for a financially sound retirement.
While classes are free, some do require registration. Please visit the online calendars at www.moneysmartweek.org/illinois to receive more information and class schedules. In addition, hard copies of the calendars are available at the City Managers office and Planning and Growth Management; and where also included in last week's paychecks.
