We often hear of teens teaching older generations and grandparents how to use technology, but wouldn’t you like to see a few tech-savvy older adults give their own peers the 411 on navigating technology in your 60s, 70s, 80s and even 90s?

Simply create and submit a “how-to” video that instructs older adults on something technical – whether it’s how to use Zoom, set up your Roomba, or store digital photos – and compete for a cash prize and a chance to be featured on SeniorLiving.org’s YouTube channel watched by more than 25,000 subscribers nationwide.

How to Enter:
1) Visit https://www.seniorliving.org/viral-video-star-contest/
2) Decide on a tech topic you want to teach about
3) Record a video no more than 5 minutes in length

Ancient Lakes Theatre Festival featuring the world premiere of the musical ‘How Can I Love You’ @ Cave B Estate Winery
Jul 15 – Jul 25 all-day
Ancient Lakes Theatre Festival featuring the world premiere of the musical ‘How Can I Love You’ @ Cave B Estate Winery |  |  |

Don’t miss this chance to experience live theatre in its most impressive setting—outdoors. Cave B Estate Winery proudly presents the Ancient Lakes Theatre Festival—a celebration of the performing arts, fully surrounded by vast vineyards and the flood-carved cliffs of the Columbia River. Situated near the Gorge Amphitheatre, soak up stunning views as the sun sets behind “Stage B,” the breathtaking natural backdrop for our featured production.

This year, we are thrilled to introduce the WORLD PREMIERE of the contemporary musical “How Can I Love You.” It offers an intimate portrait of enormous struggle as three families experience their loved-one’s journey into dementia. At turns both heartbreaking and humorous, this one-act play takes us on an odyssey through memory loss, ultimately delivering love and acceptance to these families and friends. Brimming with beautiful pop songs, powerful dance, and uplifting music, this production is a wondrous work of love. As dusk settles in behind the performers, you’ll be enchanted by the sun setting on the memories of these central characters and become invested in the tales being told onstage.

The product of a lifelong passion for music combined with helping people heal, “How Can I Love You” was penned by neurosurgeon, Dr. Vince Bryan, composed by Rand Bellar, and directed by Erik Ankrim. Reserve your seat now and prepare to be enchanted by the exploration of life’s happy memories, set among beautiful songs, powerful dancing and inspiring music.

The festival doors open at 6:00PM. Seating for the performance begins at 7:30 pm and the 90-minute performance starts at 9:00 pm

In addition to your ticket to the musical, you can make the most of your Ancient Lakes Theatre Festival experience by purchasing exclusive add-ons like meet-and-greet, pre-show boxed dinner, wine tasting in the Piazza and overnight RV parking.
