Visitors are welcome at the next meeting of the Mills Investment Club at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 2 at the Oak Park Arms, 408 S. Oak Park Ave. New members are always welcome to join or visit.
For more than 30 years the members of the investment club have come together to learn how to follow economic trends and use that information to expand the group’s portfolio. With guidance from club President Pat Koko, club members jointly purchase stocks and make decisions as a group.
The club provides a fun and easy way to learn about investing by combining camaraderie, education, buying power and confidence.
“Our year-to-date is ahead of the Dow,” Koko said. “We have a variety of stocks, and we’re doing really well.”
To make the best financial choices, a special presentation is given by a different group member each month. In addition, each member is in charge of following one stock throughout the month and presenting a report of the stock’s activity.
Currently there are 19 club members and one regular guest. To formally join, attendance to at least three meetings is required, and the final decision is made by the group. However, anyone can attend as often as they like without becoming a member.
The Oak Park Arms is a rental retirement community which provides independent and assisted living apartments and a full schedule of activities and services. Furnished apartments are also available for a short-term stay – a weekend, a week, a month or longer.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information call 708-386-4040.
