Despite a few minor blips Heri-tage Days this year was one of the best Strathmore has ever seen.For the most part the weather  was nice, the entertainment wastop notch and the price was rightfor families to come down for the weekend.“It’s been one of the best years yet, I would say,” said CarolynCharles a former Agricultural So-ciety member. While the rodeo and chuckwag-ons remained the biggest sourceof entertainment for the weekend,crowds of people wandered thegrounds taking everything in.One of the goals was to nd a way to draw in more youth, andthis year they pulled it off. TheCraz-E Crew drew crowds to allof their shows with inline skatingand BMX bike stunts. The extreme bungee and mechanical bull werealso big hits.“The bull was a great addition.He (the operator) just really works with the little kids too, doesn’t gocrazy with them or nothing,” saidKari Fulmek, Assistant GeneralManager of Heritage Days. There were nearly 6,000 volunteer hoursput into making the weekend asuccess and Fulmek said the vol-unteers were spectacular this year.“There were a lot of new thingson the grounds and people seemedto really enjoy it. Julian Austin wasa really big deal, and Jordan Doell was fantastic, really entertaining,”said Charles. The cabaret has been another staple event during Heritage Days,and for the rst time ever people were turned away as capacity hit1,700. Saturday saw the rst day of Running with the Bulls, and whilethere was an injury, it didn’t deter people from jumping into the pen.“The running of the bulls washilarious this year because bothdays someone jumped on the bulls, I’ve never seen that before,”said Fulmek.

Teach Your ChildrenTo Be Savers andInvestors
 You’ll really be helping your children ifyou teach them how to become savers andinvestors. Here are a few tips that mighthelp you:For starters, talk to your children aboutthe importance of saving for the things theywant. Tell them how you had to wait untilyou had the money for a car or a house.Next, think about matching your children’scontributions to their piggy bank or to anancial account. Children, like adults,tend to repeat those behaviours that arerewarded.Finally, discuss the basics of investing.Keep it simple at rst. Tell your children thatanyone can become owners of a companyby buying stock, and that over time,investors hope that stock price rises.By following these suggestions, youcan help your children develop nancialbehaviours that can serve them wellthroughout their lives.This is Sheetal A Pallana, your EdwardJones advisor.
