From Melinda—One of the best aspects of this amazing journey is meeting new people from all walks of life and learning about their touching stories. I recently had this opportunity at the Boomer Senior Expo on February 23 in Brevard County, FL. The Expo not only highlighted valuable senior living programs and organizations, but it also celebrated the launch of the 5th annual Boomer Senior Guide.
The idea to exhibit originally came from a wonderful lady, Jennifer East, who I recently met at a movie premeire party. After a little pre-planning and selecting which Personas to create for the display (always my favorite part!), the entire day was filled with wonderful feedback and conversations. The experience also gave me the opportunity to see, first hand, people’s reactions. It was so gratifying to see big smiles on the faces of the attendees, once again confirming that our product “puts smiles on faces.” Of course, one of the day’s favorites was Over-the-Hill Hillary, complete with her 39 AGAIN birthday hat!
From top: I learned about the expo from Jennifer East, Senior Life News…the Persona table display at the Expo…I met so many wonderful individuals like Marta Fiol from the Cancer Care Centers of Brevard…Linda Humphrey (Senior Life News) & Dave Francis (Dave Francis Entertainment) provided a welcoming smile to all Expo attendees…I loved listening to the Barber Shop quartet and seeing the ballroom dancing preformed in vintage clothing.
After the Expo, we stopped for a bite of food at a phenomenal Mexican eatery called Salsa’s Restaurant in the Downtown Historic District of Melbourne, FL. The owner/Chef Gustavo Sanchez Portia was so nice and his authentic Mexican cooking was spectacular!!! Here is his website if you are ever in the Melbourne area!
One final shout out to my wonderful hubby, Jude, for helping me at the expo and being the great guy that he is!
