A banquet hall filled with orange and gold balloons, cornucopias, fall flowers and stacks of food for the hungry was the setting for Jack Conway, Realtor’s annual Thanksgiving Award Breakfasts held at the Plymouth Radisson Hotel. More than 400 Conway sales associates from Boston to Cape Cod, the South Coast and the North Shore attended the event at which agents were honored for “team spirit and congeniality.” The winners received gift checks to purchase a Thanksgiving turkey, and all attendees brought non-perishable food items to contribute to the Charity Guild of Brockton.
“We have a lot of functions in our company that recognize agents for top production,” said Conway CEO Carol Bulman. “But this ceremony honors our associates for the intangible qualities of kindness, good humor and camaraderie. These individuals are true winners because they help and support their colleagues and their communities all year long.”
The local recipient of the Conway Thanksgiving Award from the Dorchester office was Anne O’Brien, who was recognized for her volunteer work on behalf of the Franklin Park Zoo and for being a “consistently positive influence in her office.” Also honored at the breakfast was Conway-Dorchester Manager Julie Simmons who received a special Conway Country Community Service Award for her contributions and support of her Dorchester community during the past year. Simmons serves as chairman of the Board of Trustees for the First Parish Church in Dorchester, one of the oldest churches in the city of Boston, and has been actively involved in raising funds for a massive renovation of the Circa 1631 building.
The Annual Thanksgiving breakfasts have been a tradition in Conway Country for more than 30 years, and with all of the great homes for sale in Plymouth MA that Jack Conway represents, the location is a natural choice. “We gather here in America’s hometown every November for our celebration,” said Chairman Jack Conway, who delivered the opening greeting to the group. “It’s where our country’s first Thanksgiving took place, and it reminds us to thank God for the many wonderful things we have in our lives.”
