Get out of debt seminar

Financial Peace University (FPU), the 13-week program taught by Dave Ramsey, will teach families and individuals how to handle their money through common-sense principles and small group accountability. The course will come to Summit County at the end of February. FPU is available for churches, companies, military bases, financial literacy programs, Spanish speaking organizations and community groups. As they work on a total money makeover, the average family pays off $5,300 in debt and saves $2,700 in the first 91 days after beginning FPU and is completely out of debt, except for the mortgage, in 18 to 24 months. FPU classes are beginning in Park City at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, beginning Wednesday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m. and at the Kamas Park Building, Tuesday, Feb. 27 at 7 p.m. For more information, contact Don Milne at (801) 594-8222 or to register.
