Last week’s class on How to Read a Credit Report was fantastic! We learned how long items can be on a credit report, different tips about items that affect your credit report, hard and soft inquiries and how those affect your credit score differently, and the different ways to go about correcting errors. Those who did not attend really missed out on some great information. We also had two great groups come out and volunteer with us over the weekend. Zachery Engineering helped us out with a remodel and cleaning while Bank of America came to our office and helped with some construction here. As the child of an engineer, I could not help but smile when I arrived on time Friday morning to see that their whole group was already there, signed in, almost finished with breakfast, and discussing the wobbly mail box that need to fixed. Someone even pulled their own tool box out of their truck to address the mailbox before our construction supervisor arrived. Both groups worked very hard and we appreciate everything they accomplished!
Tomorrow night is another one of our Financial/Family Stability classes titled “On the Cheap.” Everyone wants to have a home that they are proud of and that is comfortable, and our goal for this class to show how to make this possible by simply using items you already have in your home or that you can get from garage sales and thrift store, by recovering, repainting, repairing, and thinking outside the box. We will learn simple techniques to redecorate at little or no cost, and who wouldn’t want to learn how to do that?! This class will be tomorrow the 19th from 6:30-8:00 at our office on 2700 S. Wilson and everyone is invited to attend!
