Students from the JMG (Jobs for Maine Graduates) classes of Dexter, Dover-Foxcroft, Greenville and Milo attended a Financial Fitness Fair on April 14, 2017, hosted by Maine Highlands FCU.  Armed with their net monthly income, they walked through what their life may look like at age 22.  Booths were set up with information on what their expenses would be depending on their choices.  Many learned how to be creative in order to balance their budget.
