BBB Shares Five Tips to Start Saving During
Military Saves Week

(Lake Havasu City, AZ – February 24, 2015) Better Business Bureau (BBB) joins Military Saves Week February 24 through March 1, motivating, supporting and encouraging military families to save money, reduce debt, and build wealth with free resources and information offered through BBB’s Military Line.

Organized by Military Saves, a partner in the Department of Defense’s Financial Readiness Campaign, BBB and thousands of organizations are encouraging the community to take the Military Saves Pledge and commit to saving.

To get started, BBB shares five tips to start saving:

1.   Pledge to save. Take the Military Saves Pledge at bit.ly/militarysavespledge and join the more than 350,000 people committed to saving.

2.   Select a savings option. Visit saveandinvest.org/MilitaryCenter to learn about savings options from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation.

3.   Set a savings goal. People save more when they have a goal in mind. Whether it is saving for retirement, an emergency or a child’s college education, keep your savings goal top of mind.

4.   Use a savings checklist. America Saves offers a free savings checklist to help track your progress at bit.ly/savingschecklist.

5.   Share your goal. Talk about your goal with family and friends and participate in trustworthy initiatives such as Military Saves Week.

Supporting Military Saves Week, BBB’s Military Line reminds military communities of the free resources available in the areas of financial literacy and consumer protection offered through the efforts of 112 BBBs across the U.S.

BBB’s Military Line offers free resources in the areas of:

1.   Education - BBB teaches financial readiness classes at various military installations.

2.   Outreach - BBB attends and supports community fairs, conferences and events, connecting with service members.

3.   Information - BBB shares articles, links, and consumer alerts on our site, along with free consumer guides developed just for military members and their families.

4.   Data Collection - BBB analyzes data received to help identify threats and needs of our military community in the marketplace.

5.   Complaint and Dispute Resolution - BBB helps military consumers resolve disputes by taking complaints at bbb.org/complaints , and alerting on issues affecting the military community at large.

Volunteers Needed to Weed Out Intruders

Volunteers needed to weed out intruders
Saturday, March 7

volunteers

LAUGHLIN, Nev. – Volunteers are needed to remove invasive fountaingrass at Big Bend of the Colorado State Recreation Area. Tools and refreshments will be provided; volunteers are asked to bring their own work gloves.

The Fountaingrass Control Initiative is a campaign to stop the spread of green fountaingrass listed as a noxious weed in southern Nevada. This invasive plant was formerly used in ornamental landscapes, but its wind-blown seeds are spreading into roadsides, natural environments and agricultural areas, particularly around Laughlin and shorelines along the Colorado River. Once established, fountaingrass impacts wildlife habitat, decreases agricultural production and increases fire danger.

The Southern Nevada Cooperative Weed Management Area, a partnership of landowners, organizations, and federal, state and local agencies (including Nevada State Parks), brings a coordinated approach to address weeds that threaten natural environments and agriculture.

WHAT: Volunteer Weed-Pull: Fountaingrass Control Initiative

WHEN: Saturday, March 7 from 9:30 a.m. to noon.

WHERE: The park is located at 4220 S. Needles Highway, 1 mile south of Casino Drive in Laughlin.

Free Mammograms and Breast Health 101 Workshops

Posted in: Uncategorized | Comments (0)

“Take Time for Me” is a personal invitation from Susan G. Komen® Central and Northern Arizona (Komen CAN AZ) in partnership with Kingman Regional Medical Center (KRMC) for women to learn more about their breast health and lower their breast cancer risk by participating in a free Breast Health 101 Workshop. On average, nearly 150 women in Mohave County face a breast cancer diagnosis each year and of those 50 will be at late-stage when breast cancer is less treatable.

In April of last year, Komen CAN AZ demonstrated their commitment to saving lives in Mohave County with a $74,498 grant to Kingman Regional Medical Center Foundation to provide free breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for those who are low income, uninsured or underinsured. “Free mammogram Saturdays and Breast Health 101 Workshops are the latest collaboration with KRMC and we couldn’t ask for a more proactive partner,” said Sharon Kolb, Komen CAN AZ mission support specialist. Susan G. Komen recommends annual breast cancer screening for women of average risk starting at age 40. Women at higher risk should discuss screening recommendations with their doctor. Kolb will be on hand at the KRMC Imaging Center Saturday, February 7 to share tips on lowering breast cancer risk during free one-hour Workshops scheduled at 9:30am, 11:30am, and 2:00pm. Space is limited, so save your spot by calling 602-544-2873×313 or email: skolb@komenCANaz.org. Workshop participants will receive a free goodie bag.

ATTENTION LAKE HAVASU CITY!

Posted in: Uncategorized | Comments (0)

“In Lake Havasu City, we come together as a community for one of our own. Many people know long-time resident and beloved community member Kevin Shephardson. Kevin and the Shephardson family need our help.

Kevin suffered a major heart attack on New Years Eve and has been in Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas since then. His family is seeking to bring Kevin back to the Phoenix area to be close to the family where they can be of the best support.

Unfortunately insurance does not cover the transport, and we are looking for community support and donations to make it possible for Kevin to be with his family. <span style=”font-family: inherit; font-style: inherit; font-weight: inherit;”>Kevin would do it for any one of us.</span>

His children have set up a Go Fund Me account for people to contribute in order to help bring him back to his family. Please donate if you can, and share this message with your family and friends.
Go to <a href=”http://gofundme.com/k5yn3w” target=”_blank”>gofundme.com/k5yn3w</a>.

If you would like to make a donation and cannot do it on line please make donations to Sunrise Rotary and bring to Printing Plus, 2069 McCulloch Boulevard, Suite1, Lake Havasu City, AZ 86403 or Call Michelle Pounders at Printing Plus, 855-7587 if you need assistance”
