Investment Group: Consider joining our innovative, forward-thinking group. We meet once a month to discuss our portfolio and decide whether to buy or sell. We have made several successful decisions and outpaced the S&P Average. Fearless exploration but cautious acquisition is our mantra. We explored bitcoin stocks but decided they were too risky. But our analysis of cannabis stocks caused us to buy small positions in three companies (creating our own mini-ETF). Note that there is a buy-in to join the portfolio and an additional $50 investment each month to buy new stocks. Come to our next meeting on October 25 and experience the “wisdom of the group.” Please contact our president, Bev Silverman, at 256-0046  or for details.
The Memoir Group meets on the fourth Monday of each month at 2:00 pm. Our next meeting will be held on Monday, October 22. Please consider joining our group as we share some thoughtful memories. For further information, contact Cary Peterson at 226-7665 or
