Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show
Free, informative and entertaining are three words that aptly describe the Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show
The senior-focused event will be held on Sunday, May 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens Visitor Centre. The show offers free admission, informative seminars, a variety of exhibitors and onsite parking.
Back for the 18th time, the twice-annual show presented by Forever Young newsmagazine welcomes the first 750 visitors with loot bags packed with product samples, coupons and information.
The extensive list of exhibitors features everything for seniors including retirement residences, financial experts, health practitioners and tour operators. The Forever Young 50+ Lifestyle and Retirement Show also features retailers and community groups that offer opportunities for fun and outlets for various talents and interests.
Exhibitors are eager to speak to the attendees about their business and some will be offering giveaways. Be sure to visit Forever Young’s booth to get a ticket for a chance to win one of the many door prizes that will be given away throughout the day.
There will be four informative 20-minute seminars at scheduled times throughout the show:
Explore the changing trends in funeral services with Karin Schuett of Circle of Life Cremation and Burial Centre Inc. in Dundas. She’ll be sharing information and accepting questions about the popularity of celebrations of life as well as ways of dispersing cremated remains, personalization options available today and why individuals pre-arrange funeral and cremation services.
Debby LeBlanc and Mainul Husain of Health Canada – Environmental Health Programs are asking the question “is your environment healthy” during their presentation that will cover information and help available from Health Canada on radon, chemicals and air quality.
Branch banking and wealth management for adults age 50 and older will be the topic covered by TD Bank Plains Road East Burlington branch manager Michael Borrelli and wealth manager David Vainer.
Learn about how to age safely and in the right place from Jason Boelhouwer of Carlisle Retirement Home during his seminar that will cover the continuum of care.
The afternoon also will feature the sounds of The Toronto All Star Big Band, back by popular demand to perform a one-hour set beginning at 1 p.m. The talented young musicians perform music from the golden age of big bands (1930 to 1950) throughout Ontario and the United States. The band engages in cultural nostalgia with excellent programming and choreography.
