misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:30 PM THE WONDER WOMEN OF WORLD WAR II Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

In 1941, Wonder Woman appeared as the first female superhero. The timing was apt because with the bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, millions of American women were mobilized into the American war effort and served in occupations which had been barred to them just months earlier. Historian Todd DePastino will tell the remarkable story of not only how women's lives changed during WWII, but how the whole culture had to change to accommodate these radically new gender roles. Come hear about Rosie the Riveter, the WAVES, the WACS, and the much disparaged WASPs, who only achieved official recognition decades after the war.

Presenter Dr. Todd DePastino has a Ph.D. in American History from Yale University and teaches at Waynesburg University where in 2008 he won the Lucas-Hathaway Award for Teaching Excellence. He is the author of Bill Mauldin: A Life Up Front which won the 2009 Anne M. Sperber Prize for the best biography of a major media figure. Todd DePastino is founder and executive director of the Veterans Breakfast Club, a 501(C) (3) non-profit dedicated to sharing veterans' stories with the public. This program is being hosted by the library and Memorial Park Post 764 VFW.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM CHOOSING THE RIGHT COLLEGE SAVINGS PLAN Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Presented by: Jennifer Dunn, Fifth Third Bank

Saving for college can be challenging when it comes to goal setting because it is not a fixed target. According to CNBC, projected tuition in 2030 will cost more than $130,000/year. This education session will walk you through three simple calculations to help you predict and estimate the necessary goal amount to financially support your child's higher education. While everyone's financial situation and risk tolerance is different, attendees will be provided with a number of popular options by which to save. While it is up to an individual to decide which methods and tools work best for them, starting early will make it easier to put a plan in place.

Bring a friend or two and give it at try! No registration required -- just drop in!
