SBDC Workshop – Keeping the Books

Do you know what your books are telling about your business? As a responsible owner or manager, you need to learn the “language of business.”
Your business records allow you to monitor cash flow, track deductible expenses, prepare financial statements, and support your tax returns. In this workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of basic bookkeeping tasks and how to use your chart of accounts. You’ll learn to record and match revenues & expenses, record receipts & disbursements, handle end-of-period closings, and read financial reports. This seminar is not software-specific and will apply to any manual or computerized accounting system. It is an excellent foundation course for QuickBooks training.

Swannanoa Open House

Swannnoa palace imageSwannanoa Palace Open House 11:30AM to 5:30PM. Major James Dooley, an executive with the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad Company, completed construction of the $2 million Swannanoa in 1912. Dooley, who owned the Maymont estate in Richmond, built this 52-room marble palace as a token of love for his wife, Sally May. More than 300 artisans were hired to create the palace as a replica of the Villa de Medici in Rome. They used the highest quality materials available. Visitors today can still see the depth of James and Sally May’s relationship in places like the 4,000 piece Tiffany stained-glass window and a domed ceiling bearing the likeness of Mrs. Dooley. The name Swannanoa comes from Mrs. Dooley’s fondness for swans, which she liked because they choose their mates for a lifetime. Fee. 540-942-5201
