H.O.P.E. for Tomorrow Inc., in collaboration with Junior Achievement and the Sheraden Library, presented their Minding My Business Entrepreneur Club for Kids End of Session Showcase on Nov. 5 at the Sheraden Library.  The event offered a youth-focused interactive display of the concepts the local middle and elementary school program participants have learned in the MMB program, which provides knowledge to children that will enable them to make smarter decisions for their future.
The library was set up gallery-style so attendees could walk around and interact directly with the program participants, ask questions, challenge them and get to know who will be leading our community in a few years!
There were snacks and products prepared for all attendees by the H.O.P.E. for Tomorrow entrepreneurs.
