Planning your finances in anticipation of retirement can be challenging — but the Bainbridge Community Foundation can help with those important decisions. BCF is sponsoring a free workshop with renowned — and retired — investment counselor Paul Merriman on investment decisions for those close to or in retirement Thursday, May 10, from 6-8 pm at the Bainbridge Island Art Museum.

In this, the third of four workshops BCF is sponsoring, BCF board member Paul Merriman will share a wealth of experience to help you learn how to make the most of your retirement funds. Participants will learn to build their personal best combination of stocks and bonds to maximize income, minimize risk and leave more to children and charities.

You will learn:

  • How to get the most out of your investments in retirement
  • How to avoid making the most common investment mistakes made by retirees
  • How much you can spend in retirement

For details and to register visit — and begin preparing for a brighter, wealthier future!
