Kids Go Back to School in Style
Central Bank supports two Back to School Events
by Sarah Cousineau

Kids are back in the classroom starting a new year of learning in Kansas City.  Central Bank was proud this year to support two Back to School Events.  Every year, we participate in the Westside Back to School Event which was held this year on Thursday August 8th at the Ruiz Library Branch on West Pennway St.  This event was focused on the kids, so we brought our prize wheel with a “Kid’s Only” sign attached.  The smiles were infectious when they were able to spin and win a prize, which included calculators, drawstring backpacks, and piggy banks.  We also gave away some fun smaller items like notepads and pencils for school.  This is one of our favorite events each year, and we were glad to support the area families in helping their kids get excited about the new school year.

Making sure to keep all your business’s financial details in writing and up to date will allow you to accurately gauge its financial health and help you plan for the future — how much you can afford to spend, how much you have saved and what is in place to cover emergencies.

Everyone loves a low price tag, but judging new cars by their long-term ownership costs is at least as important. Taking into account such factors as purchase price, value depreciation, cost of insurance, maintenance and repairs, and fuel costs, the Scion iQ, Hyundai Veloster, Buick LaCrosse, Subaru XV Crosstrek and Chevrolet Volt are among the best in their categories.
