Implementing a financial plan may seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be. On Tuesday, October 11, from 6:30-8pm, Gary Wise a special care planner with Mass Mutual/ Seymour & Associates will discuss the importance of financial planning for families with children who have special needs at the Blanchard Valley Center’s Parent 2 Parent support group. Most families are unaware of the need, and preparation ensures the continuation of government (and other types of) assistance. Registration must be received by Sunday, October 9.
