Edward Jones is sponsoring a visit to the historic town of Snowflake.
On Saturday, Oct. 14, the excursion will feature tours of restored pioneer homes, a visit to the Stinson Museum, shopping at the old-fashioned Harvest Festival along with other activities and attractions.
Founded in 1878 by Mormon settlers, Snowflake's architecture ranges from 19th century Victorian-style homes to the recently constructed LDS Temple.
The community's wide, tree-lined streets and well-cultivated yards reflect the rich heritage of the area and the history of those who forged a new life in the untamed West.
The town of Snowflake is actually named after Edward Jones investment representative Scott Flake's great-great-grandfather, William J. Flake, and Mormon leader, Erastus Snow.
Flake, who is hosting the event, said, "Investing is really more about lifestyle than money. A number of my clients and other friends have expressed an interest in visiting my hometown of Snowflake, so we have included this as part of our Investing in Action program."
Future Investing in Action seminars and events are anticipated to include topics such as Social Security, investing for retirement, investment basics, health, estate planning, and a second-annual concert by the Payson Jazz Band.
The most recent Edward Jones Investing in Action program featured a closed circuit "Raising Money Savvy Kids" broadcast teaching parents and grandparents how to teach children about dealing with money. While most of the programs are free, the Snowflake trip has a $25 cost to cover the home tours and a special lunch.
Participants in the outing will drive or carpool to Snowflake the morning of the event, or they may stay overnight at the Osmer D. Heritage Inn Bed & Breakfast with separate reservations. Contact Flake's office at (928) 468-1470.
