Margaretville, NY (May 22, 2017) – On May 22, the Margaretville Daisy Troop visited their local NBT Bank branch for a behind-the-scenes tour and lesson in financial education.
“Kids are so eager to learn at this young age. By showing them first-hand how a bank works, they are able to get a much more thorough understanding of how to manage their own money,” said NBT Bank of Margaretville Branch Manager Carol Jean Finch. “This kind of branch tour also provides them with a strong foundation for future financial education.”
