Yesterday was Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day. And, the Connolly family was hard at work here at The Connolly Agency.
Our day began with a run on the Avon Boardwalk.
Next, Sam and Jake powered up for the day with breakfast at Bings Deli.
Sam and Jake headed to the Avon office.
Lorenzo, the newest addition to the Connolly family, headed to the Bradley Beach office.
At the office, Sam and Jake helped with inventory, organizing the office’s Open House signs, and getting contractor quotes.
Lorenzo, in the mean time, greeted clients with his cheerful demeanor and lots of snuggles.
The Connolly boys enjoyed a power lunch with Mom, Brenda from the Bedrock Cafe.
They wrapped up their day with haircuts from our neighbor, Studio Z, and then headed to the Lake Como ballfield to play a little baseball on the Connolly Agency sponsored team.
Take your Daughters and Sons to Work Day
Designed to be more than a career day, the Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work program goes beyond the average practice of “shadowing” an adult. Exposing girls and boys to what a parent or mentor in their lives does during the work day is important, but showing them the value of their education, helping them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life, providing them an opportunity to share how they envision the future, and allowing them to begin steps toward their end goals in a hands-on and interactive environment is key to their achieving success.
This year’s celebration of Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day was the 24th Anniversary of the program. By bringing girls and boys together, we all contribute to creating a more equitable world-at home, at school, and in the workplace.
