Annual Event to Attract Thousands

Posted date : Feb 08, 2001.Back to list

Mesa, AZ - Canadian Snowbird Celebration is set to roll back into the Mesa Community and Conference Center on February 8, and this year, show organizers are anticipating record-setting attendance.

When the Sun Times and Canada News ceased publishing, Canadians lost a prime source of information, says President of Medipac International, show organizers.  Canadian Snowbird Celebration is a perfect balance of information, education and entertainment.  What snowbirds are missing because of these two papers, they'll find at the Mesa Community and Conference Center.

For the very first time, Canadian Snowbird Celebration will feature an AOL/Gateway Internet Café, and Medipac International will be flying in their Internet professionals to complement the full sponsoring team.  Snowbirds are invited to send e-mail to friends and family, as well as learn the intricacies of the Internet. For some, it may be their first opportunity to try a computer ever.

Featured entertainers at this year's Canadian Snowbird Celebration include Branson, Missouri's incomparable Jennifer Wilson.  In addition to easily taking Branson's Show of the Year, Female Vocalist and Ambassador of the Year awards, Jennifer is also the star of the only USO-recognized theater in Branson.  Joining Jennifer will be Branson's Male Vocalist of the Year, David Bradley.  David is known throughout the country music scene as being a former member of 'The Sons of the Pioneers' as well as being a champion yodeler.  Rounding out the entertainment roster will be Ronnie & Glory-Anne Prophet, music award winners, recording artists and inductees to the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Guests of Canadian Snowbird Celebration will take great interest in the keynote speaker series, which includes informative talks by Canadian Snowbird Association President, Bob Jackson; travel medical insurance specialists from Medipac International and, one of North America's most widely recognized financial experts, Jerry White.

In addition to others, the 100,000-member strong Canadian Snowbird Association is a major sponsor of the event using Canadian Snowbird Celebration as a prime communication vehicle to reach out-of-country Canadians.  The CSA has undertaken a number of government advocacy initiatives on behalf of its members, says Bob Jackson.  Our plans for the coming year eclipse by far, our work of the past.  Canadians particularly those who travel, are in for a treat.

Canadian Snowbird Celebration, February 8, 2001 at the Mesa Community and Conference Center.  Admission is free.  Show hours are from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Entertainers and keynote speakers are available for interviews.
