Reality Check needs volunteers

MONROE, CT — Reality Check, the Monroe Rotary Club’s finance and budget simulation to be held at Masuk High School on Tuesday, May 17, still needs volunteers.

In the program, students will be assigned a career and given a monthly salary — after taxes. The list of careers include a broad array of jobs and salaries.

The event will be held from 10 a.m. until noon on May 17 and volunteers are needed to help students at booths when they budget their income to buy products and services. The volunteers from the business community will present the different options.

The businesses and services will include insurance, transportation, housing, clothing, furniture, entertainment and more.

To be a volunteer, call Monroe Rotary President Dennis Condon at 203-520-1812.
