The seminar will be led by three women: Diane Johnstone and Meredith Tiedemann from the bank and Kimberly Welch, a financial consultant for AXA Advisors.
Welch often works with women to help manage their money.

patricks@lakevillejournal.com

LAKEVILLE — Both state Sen. Andrew Roraback (R-30) and state Rep. Roberta Willis (D-64) think the main business of the new legislative session is the state’s finances.
