In partnership with Clinton Savings Bank and the Guidance Office, the Rotary Club of Nashoba Valley sponsored our annual financial Reality Fair at Nashoba Regional High School on the morning of Friday, April 8. More than 200 10th graders pre-selected a career and starting salary. On the day of the fair, they received a monthly paycheck (with deductions!) to purchase life's necessities, such as housing, transportation, insurance, clothing, and food. They were also tempted with nice-to-have purchases such as concert tickets, vacations, and pets! Students also had to spin the wheel of fortune to reflect unplanned income or expenses that happen as a part of life. Many thanks to the 43 volunteers who made this event a meaningful life lesson.

To learn more about what the students could purchase, you can find the 2022 volunteer handbook on nashobarotary.com in the Download section.
