Crosslake Cares, a local nonprofit organization that connects seniors to services in our area, was delighted to be part of Crosslake Days! In particular, we were pleased to host the Senior Expo – The Power of Aging which took place at The Log Church on Saturday, September 25, 2021. A new record was set with 54 exhibitors and sponsors. We are so very appreciative of the support these patrons provide, particularly during these difficult times. We would like to extend a special thank you to Whitefish at the Lakes Senior Living, our platinum sponsor. 389 registration and senior survey forms were distributed during this event. Once again, seniors voted for their top areas of interest which included taking trips, exercise, and leisure time activities. Each of these activities will be an area of focus during our 2022 Senior Expo. All who attended this year’s event had the opportunity to listen to six wonderful guest speakers supported by an excellent MC. 500 programs were distributed along with many green Crosslake Cares shopping bags and pens. Everyone enjoyed the churches’ chili and thanks to the Minnesota Department of Health, 45 seniors received COVID-19 vaccinations. This year’s door prizes included tickets to Minnesota Wild and Bemidji State hockey games along with Christmas concert tickets, a beautiful handmade quilt, gift cards to Cragun’s Resort and Manhattan Beach Lodge. Paul Douglas wrapped up the 2021 Crosslake Cares Senior Expo with his delightful narrative “Life is like the weather.”
The first annual POWER OF AGING EXPO was held on April 27, 2019. Mark Rosen of WCCO was the Key Note Speaker. The Expo was a huge success with over 500 people attending, 37 exhibitors, and 14 food vendors providing free food!
