Instead of our usual luncheon presentation, USRA will, for the first time, have a table at the Spotlight On Seniors Tradeshow. Spotlight on Seniors is an annual showcase hosted by the Saskatoon Council on Aging and TCU Place. 

Held in recognition of Seniors Week in Saskatchewan, Spotlight is the largest showcase for seniors in the province. Featuring exhibits, displays, demos, samples, prize draws as well as non-stop entertainment and lots of social opportunities.
