Provident Living Fair aims to find ‘peace through preparation’

What is being advertised as a “Provident Living Fair” with ideas for dealing with some of today’s challenges is Saturday, March 19 in Logan. It is free and everyone is invited to attend at the Mt. Logan Stake Center, 600 East and Center Street. Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Mount Logan Stake Preparedness Coordinator, Boyd Rowley, said it is not really a traditional preparedness fair. “It’s been several months in the planning and a lot of people have been involved in getting it together. “We’re excited about it particularly because this fair is not talking about the what-ifs of earthquakes, disaster preparedness or things that might happen. This is going to be talking about things that are current problems people are facing, things like finding employment and dealing with today’s economy. We have tried to select ‘here and now’ topics, what people are really dealing with today.” Rowley said the fair’s theme, “Finding Peace Through Preparation” best describes the goal of the event. “There is a lot of turmoil in the world right now, a lot of things that are causing people a lot of hardship. There will be some real practical ideas about keeping your head about you, working through the issues, and coming out ahead at the end.” A dozen breakout sessions are planned, led by “experts” including lawyers, financial planners, physical fitness specialists and more. “An attorney will conduct a class on wills and trusts. We have a bank president coming to talk about finances. Someone from the Sports Academy will be there to talk about physical fitness. Every one of them will be an expert in their field. “We’re also hoping to have all the information available electronically,” said Rowley, “so that those not able to attend the fair will be able to still benefit from the information available.” Rowley said a keynote speaker will get the event underway at 10:30 in the morning and events will continue until 2:30 p.m. He said there would be several displays and a taster’s table.
