It is that time of year again when we take a look at financial information. Financial Literacy is recognized in the month of April, and Money Smart Week will be held April 21 through April 28 for this year. Financial Literacy Month is a great time to learn to manage personal finances with events and activities, and to highlight the importance of financial literacy.
