There are three cultural activities coming up in our region that I’d like to let you know about.
First, at 7:30 p.m. today at Howard Auditorium, Louisiana Tech University’s Department of Music invites you to the Jazz Ensemble’s Winter Concert.
This free to the public performance will be directed by Lawrence Gibbs. I spoke to him about what to expect of this evening’s show, and it sounds like a jazz performance with a lot of variety and excitement.
Although the temperature is rising, a midday stroll is still not out of the question. With summer quickly approaching, temperatures will soon cross the triple digit threshold and the only outdoors activity I will be interested in will involve some large body of water. But right now, the weather is still cooperating with my need to go outside and get some fresh air.
As a result of the loss of corporate pensions and concerns about the long-term viability of Social Security, most Americans anticipate having to be personally responsible for funding their retirement to a degree that would have been unimaginable just a few generations ago. So the sooner you can start saving and investing, the better your chances for a secure retirement.
One way you can help potentially grow your retirement savings faster is to take advantage of tax-deferred investing.
A tax-deferred account can be a valuable device for effective retirement saving.
