Generations trade show features Elvis sighting

People frequent booths at the Generations trade show in Mayo Civic Center's Taylor Arena Thursday.

Rochester resident Mary Hayak had just finished listening to a presentation about estate administration at the Generations trade show Thursday afternoon at Mayo Civic Center’s Taylor Arena.

"They had a lot of information that's pertinent in today's world," she said, seated at a table on the arena floor. Comparisons of wills and trusts by the presenter were helpful, too, she said.

The presentation about estates, given by Yanowitz Law Firm, of Rochester, was a popular feature at the 19-year-old trade show, said Rosie Allen, advertising manager at Agri News, a publication of the Post-Bulletin Co., which sponsored the event.

A total of 48 vendors participated in the six-hour show. Among them, Walgreens offered flu and pneumonia shots. In the first four hours, their staff administered 80 flu shots and 10 pneumonia shots, said Dennis Thackery, pharmacy manager.

Yanowitz attorney Claire Langton-Yanowitz said people at the show expressed many concerns about estates, but among the most common was about family members potentially getting into fights over their estate, and about distributing their assets in a fair manner.


But the big hit at the show was Elvis tribute artist Brad Boice. Every table on the floor was filled during his noon performance, Hayak said.

"He really played the crowd," she said.
