Back by ‘popular demand’ the keynote speaker for
the program this fair will be Denise Gutenschwager from Detroit, A.K.A…..
“Evelyn Smallbladder”

Evelyn approaches life in the later years with humor, advice and sometimes a little cynicism. She can poke fun at the trials and tribulations of being a senior lady in a way that makes us realize we are all experiencing some of the same ‘awkward’ things we don’t always want to talk about….(as her name suggests)

She laughs at herself, her friends and life in general, as a way to stay Healthy, Happy and Productive in the ‘golden years.’ Shuttle pick ups will be available @ Floral Bldg for south campers & North Parking Lot, for easy access to & from the Merchant’s Bldg.
