Well, I have to say – my son has been waiting all year for this. Friday, July 21 was “Bring your child to work” day at Freed Maxick, and my 5-year old, Owen, has been asking about it since he wasn’t able to attend last year. Okay, I’ll fess up, I’ve been waiting too!
We love kids! Each year Freed Maxick chooses one day for our employees to bring their kids to the office so they can get a sense for where we work and what we do. Our fantastic “BYCTW” staff, headed up by Betty Casey and Dawn Kugel, go to great lengths to make this day a fun and engaging experience for all the 40+ kids that descend upon our downtown Buffalo office. With ages ranging from 3 all the way up to 18, that’s not an easy task!
By the end of the day Owen was happily misguided into thinking my typical work day involved hanging out, playing games on my computer, eating Tim Hortons Timbits for breakfast, and pizza for lunch. Oh yeah, and in-between all that I do cool crafts, take rides on the Metro Rail and a trips New Era Caps to shop… well, maybe not every day, but last Friday sure was fun!
