An economic outreach program started in 2002 will be coming to Fort Dodge next month. "Money Smart Week" made its debut in Des Moines in 2007, and since then has expanded to reach other Iowa cities each year. Money Smart Week is set for April 20-27, and will feature a variety of events designed to encourage residents to build financial knowledge and skills. Programs include "Plan For your Future", set for April 22 at the Fort Dodge Public Library, and "Geocache for College Cash" from April 22-25 at Iowa Central Community College. Barb Wollen, Family Finance Specialist with the Iowa State University Extension Office, is hopeful this will become an annual event in Fort Dodge
