The Community Foundation invites you to dinner and conversation. Share your ideas on how to prevent financial scams. 

There are many financial scams. Strange calls asking for your Social Security Number. A romantic partner controlling your finances. Caregivers exploiting the elderly. A family member making suspicious cash withdrawals. Predatory loans. Someone claiming they need your bank account number to stop a scam.  

Meet around the table with neighbors and the Community Foundation to discuss your ideas about the issue of financial scams. This free gathering is open to anyone who cares.

When our community comes together, good things happen. We want to hear from you.  If you or someone you know has experienced a financial scam, please spread the word and join us.

We continue to engage everyday residents in ways to strengthen our community.
