Financial Skills for the Younger Generation

Parents all want their children to feel unburdened for as long as possible, especially when they are heading off to college and should be focusing on their upcoming studies and a bright future.  But four years goes by very quickly, and what better way to help them meet the challenges facing them upon graduation than to get them started early on their journey toward financial independence?

To this end, Bernardsville Library will host a presentation for high school-aged students, college-aged students and their parents by three experienced financial and investment advisors from R. Seelaus & Co. on Tuesday, October 23 at 7:00 pm.  During “Financial Skills for the Younger Generation,” listeners will learn the basics of investing as it relates to goal setting.  “We believe ‘saving’ is a lifestyle,” says Christina Gentile from R. Seelaus.  “Saving throughout your lifetime is a discipline that is similar to every other goal-oriented behavior, be it consistent study habits to attain a grade point average or practice for the team sport to win the championship.  Don’t treat the future with a low priority just because it hasn’t happened yet.”

There is no charge to attend the library workshop, but advance registration is requested.  Register online at, and follow the link under Adult Programs, or call the library at 908-766-0118 to sign up.
