Hi Roy... I think I remember your writing about this last year. We have so many people moving to Charlotte to retire, I wish we'd have one of those shows here.

Good morning, Roy Kelley that's a significantly worthwhile event to attend, if one is thinking of a move to a retirement community or a second home....

Roy, sounds like a show you need to attend, to plan for a move in the future.

Good morning Roy. What a great opportunity to be exposed to so many choices. You can also eliminate some and choose a few to visit. Enjoy the journey!

I've never been to one of these events, but I would imagine it will bring the 55+ crowd and many will purchase a new leisure living home.

Hello Roy, I remember Tyson Corner staying there for a class with Red Barn Restaurants for management training.  Brings back memories, I won the Silver Spatulas award,  100% for 5 days of testing and knowledge.

That is a great way to get an introduction to the retirement communities out there.
