The University of Michigan Credit Union is hosting a couple of workshops designed to steer people towards a life of meaning rather than a life of consumption this holiday season.  

Washtenaw County Treasurer Catherine McClary is a co-sponsor of the "Tis The Season to Hang Onto Reason" workshops. She says the program provides alternative ways to celebrate the upcoming holidays, not based on consumerism. 

The workshops are taught by Kathryn Greiner, Director of Education at the U-of-M Credit Union and a renowned speaker and budget guru. 

The workshops are free of charge, but pre-registration  is required.

The first is scheduled for Saturday from 10 to 11:30 a.m.  The second is Thursday, November 7th from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Both take place at the University of Michigan Credit Union.
