LONG TERM CARE
Did You Know?
● There are approximately 111 million Baby Boomers and Gen X people in the United States.
If you need care, HOW will it affect your spouse, family, children, grandchildren? AND...if you need care, how will you pay for it?
● Nursing Home prices today cost on average $80,000/year and home health care is about $40,000/year.
Do you want to protect your family from having to deal with taking care of you on a daily basis? We are going to be holding a seminar in September addressing these issues.
All Seminars are held at Peoples First Savings Bank in Mason

Bill, a Client Manager and Loan Originator here at the bank, and his wife, Sherri had their annual Multiple Sclerosis (MS) bike ride the weekend of August 6 where they, combined, peddled 175 miles raising funds for the fight against MS, a disabling disease of the central nervous system. The cause of MS is still unknown.
Together with a team of 17 dedicated riders, they have collected over $14,600 for this worthy cause. The weekend's entire 2017 Bike MS event has received over $275,000.00 and counting. This is not possible without the generous donations which make a difference in helping to fight MS.
