On this final program, we turn the tables and Fred becomes the guest and will be interviewed by Dr. Jim Young.

The program is called "A Day in the Life" (“ADITL”).  It’s an intimate conversation with a prominent Canadian, live on stage at the fabulous Midland Cultural Centre and now available virtually on the Zoom platform.  The program looks at the lives of well-known highly successful Canadians, the events that led to their success, their interests, hopes and dreams, and what the future holds for them.  Our guests graciously donate their time.  The program generates revenue to sustain the ongoing operation of the Midland Cultural Centre.
