"The overall message of the
sympsoium was that no mat-
ter what your marital status
is, try to have a positive and
uplifting day," said singles
director Leanie Gunsberg.
"Whether singles choose to
be single or they're looking
for the right person to come
around, it's important to keep
a positive attitude?'
"I thought it would be an
interesting way to spend a
weekend," said Neal
Grossman, 45, who came from
Ohio to attend the event.
"This was my first time
coming to something like
this, but I'm glad I did
because I met someone real-
ly wonderful at the dance on
Saturday night."
Grossman said he heard

Edde Weiss of West Bloom-
field said she originally came
to the JCC to workout, but
decided on visiting the
workshop about travel to get
away from it all.
"I thought it would be in-
teresting to see why types of
things go on in the singles
world," she said.
Other workshops included
successful single parenting,
positive personal power, how
to write your own life's script
and successful money
management techniques.

Keynote Speaker Larry Bruozis

workshops the event had to
offer this past weekend.
"I'm a very happy, suc-
cessful entrepreneur, but I
have a weight problem," he
said. "That's why I sat in on
the workshop about ac-
climating yourself to a health
club setting. I wanted to learn
how to use a health club for
something more than taking
a shower:'
According to Laura Roberts,
the Women's Health Club
director at the JCC who spoke
at the workshop on the topic,
"the bar scene for singles has
moved into the health clubs.
It's the new singles scene."
During lunch at Shiffman
Hall, Oak Park resident Vicki
Utchenick, 29, a switchboard
operator at Answering. Ser-
vices, Inc., Royal Oak, said
she came to the sympsoium
because "it was something
different to do."
Utchenick said she attend-
ed last year's sympsoium, and
generally goes to "any singles
event that focuses in on self-
esteem, attitude, perception
or motivational skills!'

She said she came to this
event to gain insight on a
variety of topics including the
workshop entitled "Your
Reflections" with guest
speaker Ann Greene, P.T.C.,
the founder and director of In-
ternational Images, Inc.,
whose clients include Oprah
Winfrey and Dr. Ruth.
Utchenick's friend, Aileen
Miller, 28, a clerk/typist at
the Children's Center of
Wayne County and resident
of Southfield, also attended
the meeting.
"I came mostly because it
was something different, and
the workshops really seemed
to offer a lot," she said.
Miller said she thought the
symposium was well organiz-
ed and very helpful.
