On May 24thAshland High School, conducted it’s first ever Financial Literacy Fair (RealityFair) at the Ashland High School gymnasium. Ten volunteers from the Framingham Rotary Club joined about 40 other volunteers from the Ashland community to help staff the booths for the Fair. Approximately 180 students were scheduled to attend the Fair which gave students a “taste of reality” in trying to live within a budget and having to consider alternatives to make things balance out. Of course, the Wheel of Misfortune always throws a few curves into the process. The feedback from the attendees, the volunteers and the parents in the community has been universally positive.
