PRINCETON — Thrivent Financial for Lutherans will host a free educational workshop to help teach farmers steps to take to keep their business in the family. Called “Keeping the Farm in the Family,” the 50-minute workshop will be held at 6 p.m., Feb. 26 at the AmericInn motel in Princeton. The workshop is presented by Dan Fuehrmeyer, partner and Steven Becker, financial associate with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.

“Keeping the Farm in the Family” assists local families facing the transition of passing the farm to the next generation. Participants in the workshop learn to protect their assets today and in the future, identify and overcome transition obstacles and develop a plan to smoothly transition their business and maintain family harmony.

“A lot is at stake in the delicate hand-off of passing the farm down through generations,” says Becker. “'Keeping the Farm in the Family' helps ease that change while maintaining a successful business.”

To register for this free workshop, call Becker at 877-410-8152 or email steve.becker@thrivent.com. The reservation deadline is Feb. 19.

Complimentary dinner and refreshments will be served before the workshop.
