The Blue Earth County Library System (BECLS) is pleased to welcome Edward Jones Financial Advisor Kaylee Phelps for an event about securing your retirement, “Standing Guard: Protect What You’ve Worked For.” Whether you’re approaching retirement or recently retired, your focus may begin to shift from building your financial foundation to protecting the financial resources you’ve created for you and your family. “Standing Guard: Protect What You’ve Worked For” shares ways you can address key risks you may encounter and strategies to help prepare for the unexpected.

This event will take place on Saturday, April 2 at 10:30am in the Blue Earth County Library Auditorium at 100 East Main Street in Mankato. The event is free, but the BECLS requests that attendees register by visiting the event page at or calling 507-304-4002.
