In late September
representative Jim
Sherb attended the Abbotsford RV Show and Sale. The
annual four-day event features new recreation vehicles
on show and for sale, as well as more than 50 exhibitors
showcasing RV products and services, such as parts,
accessories, truck customizing, diesel engines, hitches
and resorts. Learning seminars were offered on a daily
basis and included topics that were relevant to RV travel.
Jim presented his snowbird travel slide show and lecture,

attended the one-day Healthier You Expo 2012, an event
which promotes healthy living across cultures. At his
snowbird travel booth, Jim had the chance to speak with
many potential snowbirds to discuss travel-related issues.
Many attendees were particularly interested in learning
more about travel medical insurance and the Canadian
Snowbird Association.
The work doesn’t stop when Jim is down south. From
his winter residence in Indio, California, Jim continues to
spread the good word about being an educated snow-
bird. He is currently booked for a speaking engagement
in Hemet and is available for additional bookings in the
Coachella Valley area (or in close proximity). To reach Jim
