United Way will have a booth at the Midlife Crisis Show on Saturday, Oct 3, 10am-5pm. Stop by and try our impact calculator and your hand at taking a selfie. Patricia Jelinksi, CEO of United Way will be part of a panel at 1pm and she will be speaking about living a life of possibility.

The MidLife Crisis Show is an interactive lifestyle event created for 50 to 75 year olds. This is a group that has completed a lot of the heavy lifting of their lives – raising families, working hard on their careers, paying off mortgages – and are now ready for something new. It could be travel, writing, volunteering, genealogy, home renovations, exploring new technology, sampling food and drink trends or starting a lifestyle business – all of which and much more will be showcased at The MidLife Crisis Show.

“This is a generation ready to challenge conventions and embrace new lifestyle opportunities. We want to help them appreciate the vast array of possibilities available to them,” says Show Manager Barbara Newton. “We want to help them answer the question they are asking themselves – What’s Next?” The event is designed to keep visitors engaged all day, leave them enriched and send them home with tools to move their life projects forward.

On Saturday, October 3rd, you can visit the Tasting Room and the Technology Petting Zoo, participate in panel discussions, pick the brains of experts, enjoy Main Stage entertainment, enter draws and contests, check out exhibits and demonstrations and meet Brent Butt from Corner Gas in person. David Lennam, local media personality, will act as emcee for the entire event. Newton says: “If you are in this demographic, ask yourself what intrigues you, what have you said you would do ‘later, when I have time?’ Whatever it is, the time to explore is now and you can get a good start at The MidLife Crisis Show.”
