St. Croix Advisors Twin Cities Financial Planning Day at 10:00 AM on 10/29/2016
Start Time: 10/29/2016 10:00:00 AM
End Time: 10/29/2016 2:00:00 PM

Brett Anderson, president of St. Croix Advisors, a financial consulting firm serving the St. Croix Valley and Twin Cities, is partnering with the Financial Planning Association of Minnesota to offer Twin Cities Financial Planning Day on Saturday, Oct. 29, from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. at the Wilder Center in St. Paul. 

Anderson and about 50 other area financial planners are volunteering their time to provide pro bono services to underserved communities, young adults, individuals or families facing special life circumstances who may not be able to engage a personal financial planner.

“Everyone strives to achieve financial simplicity no matter their circumstance,” Anderson said. “At Financial Planning Day, we are able to help others in the community who wouldn’t normally reach out for help.”  

Anderson, a Certified Financial Planner® with over 16 years of experience, works with many area business leaders and individuals on their personal investment strategies. He is a graduate of Augsburg College and active in volunteering on the St. Croix Valley Foundation and St. Croix Economic Development Association.

Angus (Gary Lukes) and Morgan (Jon Tanberg) are middle-aged farmers whose friendship has endured 30 years of ups and downs, including WWII, romance, death, and crop failure. Angus’ memory is affected by an injury he suffered during the war, but he does fine with the help of his friend. Tolerance, trust and routine rule their lives. When Miles (Derek Huebel), a naïve young actor from Toronto arrives and seeks to immerse himself in their rural lives as research for a play, Morgan grudgingly agrees to initiate the green horn into the baffling rituals of the bachelor farmer. Miles’ questions are at first innocent, but over time they set off all three on a powerful journey as Morgan and Angus relive the story of the events that shaped their lives.
